The term "simple nephrectomy" describes the technique of removing the kidney from within the Gerota's fascia
and is not a technically easy operation.
was then opened and noted to be thick and contracted in the form of a reactive rind.
Radical nephrectomy is the standard treatment of renal cell carcinoma with removal of Gerota's fascia
and its contents including kidney, perirenal fat, and ipsilateral adrenal gland with or without ipsilateral lymph node.
Abdominal CT scan revealed a hypervascular multilocular solid renal mass that had compromised Gerota's fascia
and was occupying the right renal vein.
Findings like exudates were seen in 18 patients, Stomach wall thickening in 20 cases, Gerota's fascia
thickening in 16 patients with acute pancreatitis.
After the artery is completely or partially transected, hemorrhage may be contained in the surrounding tissues such as the vascular adventitia, Gerota's fascia
The tumor was not involving retroperitoneal soft tissue including renal vessels, Gerota's fascia
and lymph nodes.
In this approach, Gerota's fascia
is suggested to be kept intact as working space is being created in the posterior pararenal fossa where perinephric fat tissue is kept outside the operative field.
I looked at the CAT scan and it didn't look like a clot," the radiologist says, disagreeing with the radiologist who read on Saturday, "I wanted to check it out before I stuck a needle in and breeched Gerota's fascia
We noticed a perinephral fat strand, thickening of Gerota's fascia
, hydronephrosis, or calyceal dilatation and presence of renal calculi in all solid tumour cases (100%) (Figs.
After opening the Gerota's fascia
and mobilising the kidney, hilar dissection carried out to secure the renal pedicles.
was opened and the renal mass approached.
