Abstract

Nephrectomy (Gk. nephros, kidney and Gr. ektomē, excision) is defined as “excision of a kidney.”1 This surgical procedure, alone or in combination with other related procedures, can be used to study several biological phenomena. These include (1) nephrectomy—mechanism of renal compensation by the remaining kidney; (2) nephrectomy, followed by the application of a Goldblatt clamp to the artery supplying the remaining kidney—development of renal hypertension; and (3) transplanting the excised kidney—transplantation biology.
