The application of laparoscopic techniques to radical cystectomy has been a recent and natural evolution of successful laparoscopic applications in renal surgery and prostatectomy. The authors' ongoing international registry comprises over 700 cases from 14 countries. Most laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) operations are performed using standard(More)
PURPOSE We used what is to our knowledge a new method to estimate volume loss after partial nephrectomy to assess the relative contributions of ischemic injury and volume loss on functional outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed the records of 301 consecutive patients who underwent conventional partial nephrectomy between 2007 and 2010 with available(More)
PURPOSE To compare the perioperative outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) with open partial nephrectomy (OPN) in solitary kidneys. METHODS Records of 1542 consecutive RAPN performed in five high-volume centers (2007-2013) were reviewed for patients with solitary kidneys. RESULTS were compared with solitary OPN cases performed during the(More)
Adrenal masses have become increasingly common due to widespread use of sectional imaging. Urologists are commonly faced with management decisions in patients with adrenal masses. Systemic review of available literature related to surgical adrenal disease was performed to summarise the most pertinent information related to adrenal masses, diagnostic(More)
Introduction. Laparoscopic radical nephroureterectomy (LNU) is being increasingly performed at several centers across the world. We review oncologic outcomes after LNU procedure and the techniques for the management of distal ureter. Materials and Methods. A comprehensive review of the literature was performed on the oncological outcomes and management of(More)
