      Abstract: Over the last two decades, the treatment of metastatic RCC has changed significantly, and the role of surgery is being debated. A 50-year-old man presented with pain in his left loin. An ultrasound, followed by a CT scan, revealed a 17.5 cm left renal mass invading the left suprarenal gland, spleen, and pancreatic tail. Radical nephrectomy through chevron incision under epidural block with general anesthesia was performed. The entire mass was removed en bloc. The estimated blood loss was 300 mL, and no blood transfusions were performed. The operation took approximately 2 h. Histological examination revealed clear cell renal carcinoma with extension into the spleen, pancreatic tail, and diaphragmatic fibers with negative resection margin. The patient discharged after a 3-day uneventful hospital stay. Aggressive surgical removal of a locally invasive renal cell carcinoma is feasible and should be considered in patients with good performance status and no or minimal distant metastases.

      Abstract: While the gold-standard for management of localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is partial nephrectomy, recent ablative strategies are emerging as alternatives with comparable rates of complications and oncologic outcomes. Thermal ablation, in the form of radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation, is being increasingly accepted by professional societies, and is particularly recommended in patients with a significant comorbidity burden, renal impairment, old age, or in those unwilling to undergo surgery. Maturation of long-term oncologic outcomes has further allowed increased confidence in these management strategies. New and exciting ablation technologies such as microwave ablation, stereotactic body radiotherapy, and irreversible electroporation are emerging. In this article, we review the existing management options for localized RCC, with specific focus on the oncologic outcomes associated with the various ablation modalities.

  • Synchronized Laparoscopic Bilateral Adrenalectomy for Pheochromocytoma in

      Abstract: Pheochromocytomas are tumors producing catecholamines that arise from chromaffin cells in the adrenal medulla. They are usually benign in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) syndrome, but they tend to present bilaterally in 50–80% of the patients. Few researchers have reported success with simultaneous laparoscopic bilateral adrenalectomy. Hence, we report a 48-year-old woman who presented with a panic attack, headache, and abdominal discomfort that had started 10 years ago. The computed tomography (CT) scan showed a large bilateral cystic lesion in both adrenal glands in favor of pheochromocytomas (30 × 22 mm and 18 × 15 mm on the right side and 40 × 33 mm and 35 × 28 mm on the left side). The patient underwent bilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy without intraoperative or postoperative complications. The total blood loss was 50 cc, and the operative time was 4 h. The histopathology of the specimen revealed pheochromocytomas of adrenal masses. In conclusion, our case demonstrates that synchronized laparoscopic bilateral adrenalectomy can be a safe and feasible treatment option for pheochromocytomas in MEN2 patients.
