OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of hemostatic agents, TachoSil and FloSeal, during partial nephrectomy using a large multicenter dataset. METHODS Data of 1055 patients who underwent partial nephrectomy between January 2009 and December 2012 in 19 Italian centers were collected within an observational multicentric study (RECORd Project). The decision(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prognostic role of venous tumor thrombus consistency in patients with renal cell carcinoma. METHODS A retrospective evaluation of the data of patients with renal cell carcinoma and a tumor thrombosis submitted to surgery from 2000 to 2013 was carried out. Histological slides were revised by two uropathologists, blinded of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) has become the standard of care for the surgical management of small and clinically localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The conservative management of those RCCs is increasing over time. Aim of this study was to report a snapshot of the clinical, perioperative and oncological results after NSS for RCC in Italy.(More)
PURPOSE The surface, intermediate, and basis (SIB) is a system based on surgeon׳s visual assessment of the thickness of healthy parenchyma remaining on the intrarenal portion of the tumor. This system has been proposed to standardize the nomenclature of the resection technique (RT) during partial nephrectomy (PN). Our study aims at evaluating whether the(More)
BACKGROUND Circulating tumor cells have been described in prostate cancer patients at diagnosis and in the metastatic phase but little is known on their role at biochemical PSA recurrence. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients radically cured with either prostatectomy or radiotherapy were sequentially included at PSA recurrence. The presence of CTCs was evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictors of positive margins in one of the largest available prospective multi-institutional studies. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated all patients who underwent NSS for radiologically diagnosed kidney tumors between January 2009 and December 2012 at 19 urological Italian centers (Registry of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the features and the predictors of "very late" recurrences after surgery for localized renal cell carcinoma. METHODS Since 1983, an institutional database with data of more than 2300 consecutive patients treated for renal cancer has been prospectively maintained. Patients N0 /Nx M0 followed for a minimum of 10 years without(More)
BACKGROUND To analyze the rates of positive surgical margins (PSM) after radical prostatectomy in patients undergoing robotic surgery (robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy - RALP) compared with those undergoing open surgery (radical retropubic prostatectomy - RRP), at an institution with medium case load. METHODS Retrospective consultation of a(More)
BACKGROUND Poor data are reported on the pathogenesis of ipsilateral relapse (IR) after partial nephrectomy (PN). The objective of this study was to investigate features of IR after PN with the intention to propose a pathogenetic classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective consultation of an institutional database that stores the data of 683(More)
