abstract

  • Renal cell carcinoma is rarely found during renal recovery from a cadaveric donor. However, because the kidneys are usually recovered after the intrathoracic and intraabdominal organs, careful palpation of the kidneys and exploration of any abnormalities is mandated to avoid transplanting any organs from a donor with a known renal malignancy.
