Long-term functional evaluation of the treated kidney in a prospective series of patients who underwent laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for small renal tumors.
BACKGROUND Renal scintigraphy may allow long-term monitoring of ischemic damage after partial nephrectomy (PN). OBJECTIVE Evaluate use of renal scintigraphy for evaluating long-term effects of warmExpand

Outcomes of Robot-assisted Partial Nephrectomy for Clinical T2 Renal Tumors: A Multicenter Analysis (ROSULA Collaborative Group).
BACKGROUND While partial nephrectomy (PN) represents the standard surgical management for cT1 renal masses, its role for cT2 tumors is controversial. Robot-assisted PN (RAPN) is being increasinglyExpand

Estimated glomerular filtration rate, renal scan and volumetric assessment of the kidney before and after partial nephrectomy: a review of the current literature.
INTRODUCTION The best method for assessing renal function after partial nephrectomy (PN) continues to be a matter of debate. Early studies evaluated kidney function by measuring serum creatinineExpand

Mini-retroperitoneoscopic clampless partial nephrectomy for "low-complexity" renal tumours (PADUA score ≤8).
An alternative to conventional laparoscopy when looking for virtually scarless surgery is mini-laparoscopy, a reproducible technique that preserves the triangulation concept. A drawback of thisExpand
