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

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

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

Super extended versus extended pelvic lymph node dissection in patients undergoing radical cystectomy for bladder cancer: a comparative study.
PURPOSE There is evidence from retrospective studies that radical cystectomy with extended pelvic lymph node dissection provides better staging and outcomes than limited lymph node dissection.Expand

Kidney tumor location measurement using the C index method.
PURPOSE Tumor location assessment is essential to plan nephron sparing kidney surgery. We describe a method to quantify the proximity of kidney tumors to the renal central sinus for reporting andExpand
