BACKGROUND The impact of positive surgical margins (PSM) on outcomes in partial nephrectomy (PN) is controversial. We investigated impact of PSM for patients undergoing PN on overall survival (OS) in different stages of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients from the US National Cancer Database who underwent PN for cT1a-cT2b N0M0 RCC between 2004-13. Patients were stratified by pathological stage [pT1a, pT1b, pT2a, pT2b, and pT3a (upstaged)] and analyzed by margin...

Abstract Background Use of partial nephrectomy (PN) in T3 renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is controversial. Objective To evaluate quality outcomes of robot-assisted PN (RAPN) for clinical T3a renal masses (cT3aRM). Design, setting, and participants This was a retrospective multicenter analysis of patients with cT3aN0M0 RCC who underwent RAPN. Intervention RAPN. Outcome measurements and statistical analysis The primary endpoint was a trifecta composite outcome of negative surgical margins, warm ischem...

Objective Utilization of partial nephrectomy (PN) for T2 renal mass is controversial due to concerns regarding burden of morbidity, though most cited data are from open PN (OPN). We compared surgical quality and functional outcomes of RPN and OPN for clinical T2a renal masses (cT2aRM).

: Systemic therapy strategies in the setting of localized and locally advanced renal cell carcinoma have continued to evolve in two directions: (i) as adjuvant therapy (to reduce the risk of recurrence or progression in high-risk localized groups); or (ii) as neoadjuvant therapy as a strategy to render primary renal tumors amenable to planned surgical resection in settings where radical resection or nephron-sparing surgery was not thought to be safe or feasible. In the realm of adjuvant therapy,...

Aim and Background: To investigate the association of serum uric acid (SUA) levels along with statin use in Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), as statins may be associated with improved outcomes in RCC and SUA elevation is associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Methods: Retrospective study of patients undergoing surgery for RCC with preoperative/postoperative SUA levels between 8/2005–8/2018. Analysis was carried out between patients with increased postoperative SUA vs. patient...
