Ultrasound Guided Percutaneous Kidney Biopsy (UGPKB) plays a major role in diagnosis of renal tumours. There seems to be little consensus regarding post-biopsy observation period. We aim to identify complications in UGPKB among outpatients with a suspected malignant renal lesion as well as the timing of onset of these complications, helping to clarify the optimal observation period. Many studies in this field suggest a lower complication risk for outpatients compared to hospitalized patients. In the latter group, an observation period of 24h after biopsy is often recommended.
Material and methods
At our institute, we performed UGPKB in 340 consecutive outpatients from March 2012-March 2014. All patient records were reviewed and complications as well as biochemical parameters were registered by (ML) and at least 10% of all findings were reviewed by (LRR) without finding any notable discrepancy.
As for one third of the patients, analysed up until now, we find a total of one major complication and a few minor, all arisen within less than 6 hours after biopsy.
Rates of both major and minor complications in UGPKB are very low suggesting a shorter observation period for outpatients, compared to what may be advisable for hospitalized patients.
