Comparison of 1,800 laparoscopic and open partial nephrectomies for single renal tumors.
PURPOSE Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is an increasingly performed, minimally invasive alternative to open partial nephrectomy. We compared early postoperative outcomes in 1,800 patientsExpand

The mTOR pathway is regulated by polycystin-1, and its inhibition reverses renal cystogenesis in polycystic kidney disease.
Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a common genetic disorder that frequently leads to renal failure. Mutations in polycystin-1 (PC1) underlie most cases of ADPKD, but theExpand

Comparative analysis of laparoscopic versus open partial nephrectomy for renal tumors in 200 patients.
PURPOSE Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is an emerging minimally invasive, nephron sparing approach for renal cell carcinoma. We compared perioperative outcomes after laparoscopic and open nephronExpand

Long-term results of nephron sparing surgery for localized renal cell carcinoma: 10-year followup.
PURPOSE Partial nephrectomy is effective for renal cell carcinoma when preservation of renal function is a concern. We present the 10-year followup of patients treated with nephron sparing surgery atExpand

Factors predicting renal functional outcome after partial nephrectomy.
PURPOSE Compared to radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy better preserves renal parenchyma and function. Although several clinical factors may impact renal function after partial nephrectomyExpand

Clinical correlates of renal angiomyolipoma subtypes in 209 patients: classic, fat poor, tuberous sclerosis associated and epithelioid.
PURPOSE Angiomyolipomas classically present radiographically as fat containing lesions but some fail to demonstrate fat content. Histologically confirmed angiomyolipomas uniformly follow a benignExpand

Kidney transplantation without calcineurin inhibitor drugs: a prospective, randomized trial of sirolimus versus cyclosporine1
Background. Progressive nephrotoxicity caused by calcineurin inhibitor drugs contributes to the long-term decline in renal function in kidney transplant patients. Methods. We conducted a randomized,Expand
