PurposeGender, smoking history, patient age, and tumor size have been found to impact the likelihood of benign histology at the time of nephron-sparing surgery (NSS). Providing external validation of these variables and evaluating the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and tumor location on the likelihood of benign histology during NSS for T1 tumors were the objectives of this study.MethodsData were analyzed for consecutive patients undergoing NSS for T1 disease. Central tumors either… CONTINUE READING
