  • incision
  • There are multiple ways the operation can be done: as an open surgery (with a large incision through the lower abdomen), laparoscopically with the help of a robot (a type of minimally invasive surgery), through the urethra or through the perineum . (wn.com)
  • Patients
  • Patients who elect to pursue an open partial nephrectomy or another type of surgery to address kidney cancer can receive outstanding treatment from the fellowship-trained surgeons in the Genitourinary Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center. (moffitt.org)
  • With improvements in robotic technology for surgery, robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN) has emerged as a preferred technique, with excellent short-term cancer and functional outcomes and decreased morbidity in selected patients. (medscape.com)
  • ORLANDO, March 2 -- In patients with renal cell carcinoma amenable to partial nephrectomy, adrenalectomy is unnecessary in most cases because adrenal metastasis is uncommon, data from a large clinical series suggest. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Only two of more than 2,000 patients had adrenal metastases, and 10-year estimated freedom from adrenal involvement in recurrent renal cell carcinoma after partial nephrectomy was 99.3%, Brian Lane, M.D., of the Cleveland Clinic, reported at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. (medpagetoday.com)
  • During a median follow-up of 5.5 years, 61 recurrences were detected in the 2,017 patients who had partial nephrectomy without adrenalectomy. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Overall survival at five years in patients undergoing partial nephrectomy with or without adrenalectomy was 82% and 84%, respectively ( P =0.75). (medpagetoday.com)
  • treatments
  • Even if the cancer has begun to spread, a partial nephrectomy can be beneficial by reducing the amount of cancer that must later be addressed with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or other treatments. (moffitt.org)
