PURPOSE Partial nephrectomy is the recommended management for small renal masses. Percutaneous ablation is safe and effective with comparable short-term cancer specific survival. Currently to our knowledge data are lacking on the impact of thermal ablation on renal function preservation. We examined the impact on renal function of partial nephrectomy vs percutaneous ablation in patients with a solitary kidney. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective review to identify patients with… CONTINUE READING
