The article reviews the domestic and international literature on the issues of biomolecular diagnosis of acute renal injury in the perioperative period in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Emerging opportunities for early detection of tumors make even more relevant the use of minimally invasive interventions. Of equal importance is the assessment of renal function in patients with diagnosed RCC and the prediction of acute renal injury and progression of chronic kidney disease in the postoperative period. The authors performed a systematic search for preclinical and clinical studies to identify the main trends and achievements in the field of biomolecular diagnosis of RCC and renal injury allowing the individual approach to choosing surgical treatment, improve the survival and quality of life of the patient and improve the functional state of the renal parenchyma.
