R.E.N.A.L. nephrometry score accurately predicts complications following laparoscopic renal cryoablation.


PURPOSE The R.E.N.A.L. nephrometry is a standardized scoring system that quantifies the complexity of kidney tumors. We evaluated our experience with laparoscopic cryoablation and determined the ability of nephrometry to predict complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the records of all patients who underwent laparoscopic cryoablation from July… (More)
