  • Partial nephrectomy, said Dr. Miller and colleagues, is associated with "potentially more favorable renal function and health-related quality of life among [partial nephrectomy] survivors, and our findings suggest a quality of care concern based on the possible under-use of a health service associated with favorable outcomes.

  • Cancer
  • 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)
  • Multiple series have now demonstrated excellent long-term cancer outcomes for laparoscopic nephrectomy. (medscape.com)
  • Similar to surgery for early breast cancer, clarification of the optimal use of PN may well require a more sophisticated understanding of patient preferences for partial versus total nephrectomy. (medpagetoday.com)
  • in 1875 being credited with achieving the first recorded occurrence of cure by nephrectomy in France, and in 1898, with Joaquín Albarrán (1860-1912), performing the first nephroureterectomy for upper tract urothelial cancer. (wikipedia.org)

  • Historically, partial nephrectomy was not offered as a standard treatment to otherwise healthy patients but was reserved for patients with a solitary kidney, poor renal function, or bilateral tumors. (medscape.com)

  • The authors cautioned, however, that because their analysis does not include data from patients treated after 2001, the trend toward increased use of partial nephrectomy may make their "concerns unsubstantiated. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The study is also limited, they wrote, by "currently inadequate methodology and insufficient data to define the 'right rate' of partial nephrectomy among patients with small renal masses. (medpagetoday.com)
  • To investigate whether nephrectomy extends survival when compared with active monitoring or kidney-sparing surgery, Steve Campbell, MD, PhD, of the Cleveland Clinic and colleagues studied information from 537 patients with localized kidney tumors that were up to 7 cm in diameter and were detected at age 75 or older.
