Urinothorax Following Microwave Ablation of a Renal Mass

Matt Miller, HBA, Blake Hamilton, MD and Keith Quencer, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 11, 2020

Percutaneous ablation of renal masses is an alternative to partial nephrectomy. The three main techniques for ablation of these masses are Radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation and microwave ablation. We report a case of an 83-year-old man who underwent microwave ablation of a renal mass complicated by delayed development of an urinothorax eventually necessitating nephrectomy. Urinothorax following percutaneous renal ablation has not previously been described in the published literature. Compare...

Massive hematuria due to renovascular injury has been reported in 0.3-1% of patients following PCNL. Persistent hematuria can be life-threatening if not managed on emergency basis. Almost all renal punctures for PCNL are associated with vascular injury - some trivial and self-re...
