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 warm… Expand
Partial Nephrectomy in Clinical T1b Renal Tumors: Multicenter Comparative Study of Open, Laparoscopic and Robot-assisted Approach (the RECORd Project).
OBJECTIVE To evaluate perioperative results of open (OPN), laparoscopic (LPN), and robot-assisted partial nephrectomies (RAPN) and to identify predictive factors of Trifecta achievement for clinical… Expand
Evaluation of functional outcomes after laparoscopic partial nephrectomy using renal scintigraphy: clamped vs clampless technique
To examine differences in postoperative renal functional outcomes when comparing clampless with conventional laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) by using renal scintigraphy, and to identify the… Expand

To report the first clinical experience with a temporary implantable nitinol device (TIND; Medi‐Tate®) for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia… Expand
Below Safety Limits, Every Unit of Glomerular Filtration Rate Counts: Assessing the Relationship Between Renal Function and Cancer-specific Mortality in Renal Cell Carcinoma.
BACKGROUND The hypothesis that renal function could influence oncological outcomes is supported by anecdotal literature. OBJECTIVE To determine whether estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)… Expand
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 increasingly… Expand

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 creatinine… Expand
A prospective, multicenter evaluation of predictive factors for positive surgical margins after nephron-sparing surgery for renal cell carcinoma: the RECORd1 Italian Project.
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… Expand
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 this… Expand
