The purpose of this study was to compare the postsurgical survival of UUT-UC patients treated with ONU and LNU. Using a multi-institutional, national, retrospective database, we identified patients with UUT-UC who underwent radical nephroureterectomy by open access (ONU) or by the minimally invasive alternative (LNU). Survival curves were estimated using(More)
Background:There are no validated markers that predict response in metastatic renal cell cancer (RCC) patients treated with sunitinib. We aim to study the impact of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that have recently been proposed as predictors of outcome to anti-VEGF-targeted therapy in metastatic RCC in an independent cohort of patients.Methods:We(More)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Upper urinary tract urothelial carcinomas (UUT-UCs) are rare tumours. Because of the aggressive pattern of UC, radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) with bladder cuff removal remains the 'gold-standard' treatment. However, conservative strategies, such as segmental ureterectomy (SU) or(More)
Postpartum urinary retention is an uncommon event that occurs in 0.7 to 0.9% of vaginal deliveries. An ignorance of this situation can lead to delayed diagnosis worsening the prognosis and to inadequate treatments. This complication is defined as the absence of spontaneous micturition within 6hours of vaginal delivery with a bladder volume above 400mL. The(More)
OBJECTIVES The role of cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) in the treatment of patients harboring metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has become controversial since the emergence of effective targeted therapies. The aim of our study was to compare the overall survival (OS) between CN and non-CN groups of patients presenting with mRCC in the era of targeted(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify prognostic biomarkers in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) using a proteomic approach. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed a comparative proteomic profiling of ccRCC and normal renal tissues from 9 different human specimens. We assessed differential protein expression by iTRAQ (isobaric tagging reagent for absolute quantify)(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are at risk of developing renal tumours. OBJECTIVE Compare clinical, pathologic, and outcome features of renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) in ESRD patients and in patients from the general population. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Twenty-four French university departments of urology participated in(More)
The management guide-lines about stage I seminoma (pT1 à pT4, No, Mo) recommend to perform a surveillance, an adjuvant chemotherapy based on carboplatine, or a radiotherapy. However, these options are not equivalent for side effects and relapse risk. Debates are in progress in order to simplify the surveillance protocols which remain essential because of(More)
To compare partial nephrectomy (PN) and percutaneous ablative therapy (AT) for renal tumor in imperative indication of nephron-sparing technique (NST). Between 2000 and 2015, 284 consecutive patients with a kidney tumor in an imperative indication of NST were retrospectively included in a multicenter study. PN [open (n = 146), laparoscopic (n = 9), or(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the present study was to analyse whether nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) was superior to radical nephrectomy (RN) in preserving renal function outcome in tumors larger than 4cm. METHODS The data from 888 patients who had been operated upon at eight french university hospitals were retrospectively analyzed. Glomerular filtration(More)
