Abstract

An 18-year-old Quarter Horse gelding was examined for haematuria of 6 weeks' duration. Rectal examination identified an enlarged left kidney and ultrasonographic examination of the kidney identified grossly abnormal renal architecture. Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy was performed following laparoscopic exploration of the abdomen for metastatic disease. A laparoscopic stapling device was successfully used to transect and ligate the renal vasculature and ureter. Histopathological examination of the kidney identified renal cell carcinoma. A 7 month survival was documented following surgery. Unilateral nephrectomy should be considered a therapeutic or palliative procedure for horses with renal cell carcinoma.
