Disease relevance of Flank Pain


High impact information on Flank Pain

  • The role of spontaneous reporting in detecting the suprofen-associated flank pain syndrome was examined, including the specific effect of the "Dear Doctor" letter in accelerating the information-gathering process once the initial signal was generated [6].
  • The entire "classic triad" of flank pain, gross hematuria, and palpable mass was not present at the time of diagnosis in any of the patients [7].
  • Acute onset flank pain, suspicion of stone disease. American College of Radiology. ACR Appropriateness Criteria [8].
  • Preliminary observations suggest that treatment with the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor enalapril importantly reduces the frequency and severity of the episodes of gross hematuria and flank pain in most patients [9].
  • RESULTS: Of 400 patients admitted with acute flank pain 225 fulfilled the inclusion criteria, of whom 110 (49%) were eligible for evaluation and received rofecoxib (36), diclofenac (39) and placebo (35) [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Flank Pain


Anatomical context of Flank Pain

  • CONCLUSION: Renal cell carcinoma should be considered in women of childbearing age who present with recurrent or refractory urinary tract symptoms, flank pain, or a palpable flank mass [16].
  • METHODS: Eight patients (4 women and 4 men) between 23 and 58 years old (mean 39.1) underwent transposition of the left renal vein for treatment of the nutcracker phenomenon associated with recurrent gross hematuria and flank pain [17].
