Abstract Background A recent multi-center study showed how estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and cancer specific mortality (CSM) are linearly and inversely related in organ-confined renal carcinoma (RCC), whenever the eGFR decreases below specific thresholds. We addressed our previous work limitations related to heterogeneity and missing data, and to explore the relationship between eGFR and CSM also in locally advanced RCC. Materials and methods All RCC patients treated with either partial or radical nephrectomy from 1990 to 2018 at a single institution and with complete data on renal function were included. eGFR was managed as a time-dependent variable. The relationship between eGFR and CSM was analyzed using a Fine and Gray’s multivariable competing risks framework. Subdistribution hazard ratios (SHR) were calculated accounting for deaths from other causes. Results Multivariable competing risks analysis showed a “piecewise” relationship between eGFR and CSM, with an inverse linear correlation for eGFR values below 85 ml/min. Below this breakpoint, a significant relationship existed between eGFR and CSM in both clinical (SHR 1.27, p Conclusions In patients undergoing surgery for stage I-II RCC, preservation of renal function over “safety limits” is protective from CSM.

Background and objectives Community-based reports regarding eGFR and the risk of cancer are conflicting. We here explore plausible links between kidney function and cancer incidence in a large Scandinavian population–based cohort. Design, setting, participants, & measurements In the Stockholm Creatinine Measurements project, we quantified the associations of baseline eGFR with the incidence of cancer among 719,033 Swedes ages ≥40 years old with no prior history of cancer. Study outcomes were any...

Abstract We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the efficiency and safety of partial nephrectomy (PN) compared with radical nephrectomy (RN) for large (≥7 cm) renal tumors. A comprehensive literature search with no restrictions on language or region was conducted from August up to October in 2018 in the electronic databases of PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Scopus. Studies meeting the inclusion criteria were subjected to a systematic review and cumulative meta-analysis to assess the...

National Comprehensive Centre Network (NCCN) (1), as well as European Association of Urology (EAU) (2) guidelines recommend partial nephrectomy (PN) as the treatment of choice for stage T1 renal cell carcinoma (RCC). This recommendation is based on the rationale for maximal renal function preservation, lower risk of cardiovascular events and lower rate of other-cause mortality (OCM) provided by PN, relative to radical nephrectomy (RN) (3-7). Additionally, PN provides equivalent cancer control ra...

Abstract Background The hypothesis that renal function could influence oncological outcomes is supported by anecdotal literature. Objective To determine whether estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is related to cancer-specific mortality (CSM) in patients who had undergone surgery for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Design, setting, and participants A retrospective analysis of 3457 patients who underwent radical (39%) or partial nephrectomy (61%) for cT1–2 RCC between 1990 and 2015. Outcome m...

Partial nephrectomy (PN) is the gold standard for treatment of small renal masses (1). The spread of this technique is due to equivalent oncological outcomes compared to radical nephrectomy (RN), better kidney function preservation and impact on cardiovascular outcomes (2). However, the hypothesis that the amount of renal function could influence oncological outcomes is still poorly inquired.

To evaluate predictors of long-term survival for patients with chronic kidney disease primarily due to surgery (CKD-S). Patients with CKD-S have generally good survival that approximates patients who do not have CKD even after renal cancer surgery (RCS), yet there may be heterogeneity within this cohort.From 1997 to 2008, 4 246 patients underwent RCS at our centre. The median (interquartile range [IQR]) follow-up was 9.4 (7.3-11.0) years. New baseline glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was defined...

Abstract Background Partial nephrectomy (PN) is the reference standard of management for a cT1a renal mass. However, its role in the management of larger tumors (cT1b and cT2) is still under scrutiny. Objective To conduct a meta-analysis assessing functional, oncologic, and perioperative outcomes of PN and radical nephrectomy (RN) in the specific case of larger renal tumors (≥cT1b). The primary endpoint was an overall analysis of cT1b and cT2 masses. The secondary endpoint was a sensitivity anal...

Purpose: There is no consensus regarding a protective effect on mortality due to a cause other than cancer in patients treated with elective nephron sparing surgery relative to their radical nephrectomy counterparts. We test whether the protective effect of nephron sparing surgery relative to radical nephrectomy is universal or present in specific subgroups of patients.Materials and Methods: A collaborative database of 5 institutions was queried to evaluate 1,783 patients without chronic kidney ...

BACKGROUND Recent publications have reported an association between increased renal cancer-specific mortality (CSM) and reduced renal function "below safety limits," and advocated for partial nephrectomy (PN) even for potentially aggressive/complex tumors. We hypothesize that this association may be related to confounding factors rather than a consequence of functional differences. OBJECTIVE To assess whether there is an independent association between preoperative estimated glomerular filtratio...
