Aspirin raises bleeding risk in partial nephrectomyRemaining on preventive antiplatelet therapy with aspirin significantly increases the risk of bleeding complications in patients undergoing partial nephrectomy, according to research presented at the European Association of Urology annual congress in Madrid, Spain.
RT promising in kidney Ca patients with thrombusTwo case studies of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy yielded survival times comparable to those seen with surgical treatment.
Adjuvant therapy fails in locally advanced kidney CaTwo angiogenesis inhibitors that are widely used in metastatic renal cell carcinoma did not improve survival compared with placebo when used as adjuvant treatment, a new study found.
Study: 'Optical biomarkers' may have utility in RCCA novel optical imaging technology is showing promise as a potential diagnostic tool for renal cell carcinoma.
How much do women understand about breast density? And other current researchA research round-up on how much women understand about breast density and the role of lycopene in kidney cancer risk. Plus, NICHD pledges money for research into the placenta.
Best of GU Cancers 2015: Dr. Thrasher’s picks and moreNew, large-scale studies on active surveillance, IMRT complications, and robotic versus open prostatectomy were among the highlights of this year’s Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.
Nonthermal technique promising for small renal tumorsPercutaneous irreversible electroporation is showing promise as a novel minimally invasive approach for treating small renal tumors, according to the experience of urologists at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas.
New hope for treating deep renal tumors?If further work with irreversible electroporation refines its capacity for discrete tissue ablation deep within the kidney and adjacent to large blood vessels, and especially if larger tumors can be addressed, then this would be a major step forward in the minimally invasive treatment of localized renal cancer.
Are women with PCOS at greater risk of cancer?According to a new study in Gynecologic Oncology, women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) may be at greater risk of developing some types of cancer.
USC urologists take robot to next level in thrombectomy - VIDEO
USC urologists take robot to next level in thrombectomy - VIDEOUrologists at the University of Southern California’s Institute of Urology in Los Angeles are taking robotic kidney surgery to a new level. Inderbir S. Gill, MD, MCh, executive director of the USC Institute of Urology, has pioneered the use of the robot in patients with complex (level III) inferior vena cava thrombi.
