Abstract null null Background null Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) is increasingly adopted for the treatment of localized renal tumors; however, rates and predictors of significant renal function (RF) loss after RAPN are still poorly investigated, especially at a long-term evaluation. null null null Objective null To analyze the predictive factors and develop a clinical nomogram for predicting the likelihood of ultimate RF loss after RAPN. null null null Design, setting, and participan...

Abstract Background Ischemia time during partial nephrectomy (PN) is among the greatest determinants of acute kidney injury (AKI). Whether this association is affected by the preoperative risk of AKI has never been investigated. Objective To assess the effect of the interaction between the preoperative risk of AKI and ischemia time on the probability of AKI during PN. Design, setting, and participants Data of 944 patients treated with on-clamp PN for cT1 renal tumors were extracted from the Regi...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are common events after radical nephrectomy (RN). In this study we aimed to predict AKI and CKD after RN relying on specific histological aspects. We collected data from a cohort of 144 patients who underwent radical nephrectomy. A histopathological review of the healthy part of the removed kidney was performed using an established chronicity score (CS). Logistic regression analyses were performed to predict AKI after RN, while linear re...

PURPOSE The current literature regarding the effect of blood loss (eBL) after nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) on long-term renal function is scarce. We tested the effect of eBL on the risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) after NSS. METHODS Within an institutional prospectively maintained database, we identified 215 patients treated with NSS for cT1N0M0 renal mass at one European high-volume center. Multivariable logistic regression models tested the effect of eBL on the risk of developi...

The indications for adjuvant vascular endothelial growth factor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (VEGF-TKI) agents after curative intent nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma are still a matter of debate. The ASSURE, PROTECT and ATLAS trials have failed to meet their primary end-points. Conversely, S-TRAC has shown a disease free survival (DFS) benefit. To date, meta-analyses have repeatedly proved the absence of a clinical benefit, in term of DFS and overall survival (OS). Nevertheless, the results of ...
