PurposeTo examine the association between CT measures of visceral obesity and short-term postoperative outcomes in renal clear cell carcinoma (RCCC) patients.MethodsIn this retrospective study, 76 patients treated with unilateral laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for stage I–III renal cancer were classified as obese or non-obese by preoperative CT-based measures of adiposity [obese: visceral fat area (VFA) > 100 cm2, BMI ≥ 28 kg/m2]. Clinical variables, Fuhrman grade, operation time, estimated… CONTINUE READING
