Paciente birreno o monorreno

Hola.

Quisiera saber si existe algún término con el mismo significado de monorreno / birreno en inglés, o si simplemente se debe traducir como a patient with one/two kidneys?

Lo he leído en mucho artículos de estudios clínicos en español, sobretodo en Urología.

Un paciente birreno es aquel que tiene dos riñones; y monorreno, el que tiene un solo riñón.

Espero que me podáis sacar de la duda, gracias.

    Mi valoración:

    La palabra 'birreno' lo es simplemente en contraposición a la palabra 'monorreno' dado que ésto es la anomalía y lo primero es, a priori, lo normal.

    En inglés se diría single-kidney patient para monorreno y si hay una palabra para birreno, lo desconozco.

    Saludos,

    Es.

    We tend to take two kidneys for granted unless there is evidence to the contrary, so I don't know any descriptive phrase. ( Even though the incidence of renal agenesis is about one in 750, which is not that uncommon.) Single kidney or solitary kidney, and also renal agenesis, are the words I have seen in use. I think solitary kidney is the more common phrase unless one is talking about single functioning kidney.

    That's true.

    The thing is when a clinical study mentions that it includes patients with two kidneys and you need to specify this.

    An example:

    El estudio incluye 200 pacientes birrenos con tumor renal único.

    The translation would be:

    The study includes 200 patients with two kidneys and single renal tumor.

    It doesn't sound good to me, but maybe I'm wrong...

    The study includes 200 two-kidney patients with a single renal tumor.
    I like "two-kidney patients" bu this sounds like they only have one renal tumor among them all. How about "...with unilateral renal tumors."
