This structure rapidly regresses in the human embryo.  The midzone mesonephros, however, continues to differentiate, giving rise to tubular structures which,  although ultimately destined to contribute… Upper urinary tract   

Less radical tumor surgery can offer better long-term kidney function

Patients with kidney tumours larger than four centimetres are much more likely to enjoy good long-term renal function if they undergo nephron-sparing surgery rather than radical nephrectomy, according to a study in the February issue of the urology journal BJUI.

Researchers from the Department of Urology at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, studied… Less radical tumor surgery can offer better long-term kidney function
