PURPOSE To assess the outcomes of retroperitoneal robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (r-RAPN) in a large cohort of patients with postero-lateral renal masses comparing to those of transperitoneal RAPN (t-RAPN). METHODS Patients with posterior (R.E.N.A.L. score grading P) or lateral (grading X) renal mass who underwent RAPN in six high-volume US and European centers were identified and stratified into two groups according to surgical approach: r-RAPN ("study group") and t-RAPN ("control group"). ...

Abstract Introduction Multicenter retrospective analysis of robotic partial nephrectomy for completely endophytic renal tumors (i.e. 3 points for the ‘E’ domain of the R.E.N.A.L. nephrometry score) was performed. Materials and methods Patients’ demographics, tumor characteristics, perioperative, functional, pathological and oncological data were analyzed and compared with those of patients with exophytic and mesophytic masses (i.e. 1 and 2 points for the ‘E’ domain, respectively). Multivariable ...

PURPOSE Intravesical recurrence (IVR) after radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) has an incidence of approximately 20-50%. Studies to date have been composed of mixed treatment cohorts - open, laparoscopic, and robotic. The objective of this study is to assess clinicopathologic risk factors for intravesical recurrence after RNU for UTUC in a completely minimally invasive cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a multicenter, retrospective analysis of 48...

Abstract Background Pancreatic metastases (PM) are a rare site of metastasis for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). It has been suggested that patients with metastases to the pancreas have a more favorable prognosis, but little is known about the long-term outcomes of these patients with systemic therapy. Objective To understand the outcomes of patients with metastatic RCC with PM treated with systemic therapy. Design, Setting and Participants We conducted a pooled analysis of 4736 metastatic RCC patie...

PURPOSE To compare functional outcomes of partial nephrectomy (PN) and active surveillance (AS) in oncocytoma. METHODS Multicenter retrospective analysis of patients with oncocytoma managed with PN or AS (biopsy-confirmed). Primary outcome development of de novo chronic kidney disease (CKD) (eGFR < 60 mL/min/1.73m2). Cox regression Multivariable analysis (MVA) was carried out for predictors of de novo CKD. Linear regression was carried out for factors associated with increasing deltaGFR. Kaplan-...

Abstract Background Selection of patients for upfront cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has to be improved. Objective To evaluate a new scoring system for the prediction of overall mortality (OM) in mRCC patients undergoing CN. Design, setting, and participants We identified a total of 519 patients with synchronous mRCC undergoing CN between 2005 and 2019 from a multi-institutional registry (Registry for Metastatic RCC [REMARCC]). Outcome measurements and s...

Background Radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) represents the standard of care for high grade upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). Open and laparoscopic approaches are well-established treatments, but evidence regarding robotic RANU is growing. The introduction of the Xi® system facilitates the implementation of this multi-quadrant procedure. The aim of this video-article is to describe the surgical steps and the outcomes of Xi® robotic RNU. Methods Single stage Xi® robotic RNU without patients...

OBJECTIVE To investigate association of pre-treatment C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and non-cancer mortality (NCM) in a cohort of patients undergoing surgery for localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS Retrospective multicenter analysis of patients surgically treated for clinical stages 1-2 RCC from 2006-17, excluding all cases of cancer-specific mortality. Descriptive analyses were obtained between normal pre-treatment CRP (≤0.5mg/dL) and elevated CRP (>0.5mg/dL) groups. Primary outcome was NC...
