Common Urological Problems

Radical Nephrectomy

Slower recovery from kidney removal for donors

People who have a healthy kidney removed in order to donate may take a bit longer to fully recover than people who have the surgery due to kidney disease, a new study suggests. Expectations may play an important role in the differences.

The research involving 149 patients at one Canadian medical center looked at… Slower recovery from kidney removal for donors   



Less radical tumor surgery can offer better long-term kidney function

Patients with kidney tumours larger than four centimetres are much more likely to enjoy good long-term renal function if they undergo nephron-sparing surgery rather than radical nephrectomy, according to a study in the February issue of the urology journal BJUI.

Researchers from the Department of Urology at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, studied… Less radical tumor surgery can offer better long-term kidney function   



Mayo Clinic Finds Surgeon Caseload, Practice Setting Affect Treatment of Small Kidney Tumors

Patients with small kidney tumors are more likely to be offered treatment options based on surgeons’ case volume and type of practice than on tumor characteristics, a Mayo Clinic study has found. Fellowship-trained surgeons who practice in academic medical centers with high volumes of patients with kidney tumors were 70 to 80 percent more… Mayo Clinic Finds Surgeon Caseload, Practice Setting Affect Treatment of Small Kidney Tumors   



Robot-Assisted Surgery Now Favored Treatment for Kidney Cancer

Robot-assisted surgery has replaced another minimally invasive operation as the main procedure to treat kidney cancer while sparing part of the diseased organ, and with comparable results, according to a new research study by Henry Ford Hospital urologists.

While the study shows that robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPD), available only since 2004, may also offer… Robot-Assisted Surgery Now Favored Treatment for Kidney Cancer
