A kidney cyst is a pocket of fluid pouching out of the kidney. Cystic enlargement of the kidney can cause abdominal discomfort, pain and sometimes high blood pressure. For a kidney cyst that is large enough to cause you pain and abdominal discomfort.
Renal Cyst Excision
Renal Cyst Excision is the surgical procedure to remove one or more renal cysts.
Doctors don’t know exactly what causes simple kidney cysts. They do have a few possible explanations. For example, each kidney has about a million tiny tubules that collect urine. Cysts may start to grow when a tube becomes blocked, swells up, and fills with fluid. Another possibility is that cysts start when pouches called diverticula form in weakened areas of the tubules and fill with fluid. You’re more likely to have kidney cysts as you get older. By age 40, about 25% of people will have them. By age 50, about 50% of people will have kidney cysts. Men are at greater risk than women of developing kidney cysts.
Usually cysts don’t cause any problems. However, sometimes they can lead to complications, including:
Infection in the cyst
Blockage of urine out of the kidney
High blood pressure
Reasons of the Procedure
For the majority of simple renal cysts, there is no need for any intervention to be done. Renal Cyst Excision is indicated:
when the cyst is large in size and exerts pressure
when there are symptoms such as pain caused by potential bleeding
after unsuccessful cyst aspiration and infusion of a sclerosings agent
Preparation or Diagnosis
Preparation includes blood tests, chest X-ray and ECG (electrocardiogram). In case you are on anticoagulant therapy, it may be required to interrupt your anticoagulant therapy a few days before the operation. You should always consult your Cardiologist, for there may be need to replace anticoagulants with injections in the abdominal region.
Renal Cyst Excision can be open surgery (with skin incision), laparoscopic or robotic, and is performed under general anesthesia. After surgery there is need for placing a urinary catheter. In the laparoscopic method, small skin incisions are made to allow for a small high-resolution camera to be inserted and transfer the image to the screen, as well as for multiple surgical instruments to pass through and be used by the surgeon and surgery group. As for robotic-assisted surgery, this is based on laparoscopic surgery, with the only difference that all surgical instruments are connected to an apparatus giving the potential to the surgeon to operate while sitting in front of a screen using all instruments remote from the patient. A temporary drainage tube is inserted to the operated sites, which is usually removed on the first postoperative day. The length of hospital stay depends on the surgical method applied. In case of open surgery, hospital stay is usually 7 days, while in endoscopic procedures it is 2-3 days.

If it has become large enough to cause pain, discomfort, or high blood pressure, it may need to be surgically removed. Some complex cysts may also be removed due to an increased risk of kidney cancer or because the patient is experiencing a decline in kidney function.
There is no cure. Treatments can help with symptoms and complications. They include medicines and lifestyle changes, and if there is kidney failure, dialysis or kidney transplants. Acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD) happens in people who have chronic kidney disease, especially if they are on dialysis.
