OBJECTIVE To examine relative contributions of functional parenchymal preservation and renal ischemia following nephron-sparing surgery (NSS). While residual functional parenchymal volume (FPV) is proposed as the key factor in predicting functional outcomes following NSS, efforts to curtail ischemia time continue to add technical complexity to partial nephrectomy. METHODS Our kidney cancer database was queried for patients who underwent NSS with warm ischemia time (WIT). Patients with cross… CONTINUE READING
