Trifecta and optimal perioperative outcomes of robotic and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy in surgical treatment of small renal masses: a multi‐institutional study
To compare the perioperative outcomes of robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) with laparoscopic PN (LPN) performed for small renal masses (SRMs), in a large multi‐institutional series and to define a… Expand
Percutaneous nephrolithotomy versus retrograde intrarenal surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONTEXT Recent advances in technology have led to the implementation of mini- and micro-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) as well as retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) in the management of kidney… Expand
Cryoablation for Small Renal Masses: Selection Criteria, Complications, and Functional and Oncologic Results.
CONTEXT Cryoablation (CA) is a minimally invasive modality with low complication rates, but its use in urology is relatively recent. OBJECTIVE To summarize available evidence for CA for small renal… Expand
Cryoablation versus Partial Nephrectomy for Clinical T1b Renal Tumors: A Matched Group Comparative Analysis.
BACKGROUND The traditional treatment for a cT1b renal tumor has been radical nephrectomy. However, recent guidelines have shifted towards partial nephrectomy (PN) in selected patients with cT1b renal… Expand

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. … Expand
Perioperative Outcomes of Robotic and Laparoscopic Simple Prostatectomy: A European-American Multi-institutional Analysis.
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic and robotic simple prostatectomy (SP) have been introduced with the aim of reducing the morbidity of the standard open technique. OBJECTIVE To report a large… Expand
Five-year Oncologic Outcomes After Transperitoneal Robotic Partial Nephrectomy for Renal Cell Carcinoma.
BACKGROUND Robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) is established as a minimally invasive nephron-sparing technique with excellent perioperative and intermediate oncologic outcomes. However, long-term… Expand
Multicenter assessment of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
BACKGROUND The efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for muscle-invasive bladder cancer (BCa) was established primarily with methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin (MVAC), with… Expand
A Multi-Institutional Analysis of Outcomes of Patients with Clinically Node Positive Urothelial Bladder Cancer Treated with Induction Chemotherapy and Radical Cystectomy.
PURPOSE Selected patients with bladder cancer with pelvic lymphadenopathy (cN1-3) are treated with induction chemotherapy followed by radical cystectomy. However, the data on clinical outcomes in… Expand
Ipsilateral renal function preservation after robot‐assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN): an objective analysis using mercapto‐acetyltriglycine (MAG3) renal scan data and volumetric assessment
To objectively assess ipsilateral renal function (IRF) preservation and factors influencing it after robot‐assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
