PURPOSES: Although several anatomical classification systems that aimed to standardize the description of renal tumors were previously reported, a special classification system is required to help predict the complexity and perioperative outcomes of off-clamp nephron-sparing surgery (NSS). We developed a novel criterion-zero ischemia index (ZII), aiming to help predict the perioperative outcomes after off-clamp NSS and guide patient selection. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 149 patients between June 2009 and July 2014 in our institution who underwent off-clamp NSS with available computed tomography images...

PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate whether increased nucleophosmin expression predicts recurrence and survival in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). METHODS: Specimens from 101 patients with N0M0 UTUC undergoing radical nephroureterectomy were evaluated. Nucleophosmin expression was determined immunohistochemically and categorized into two groups according to nucleophosmin staining intensity. The association between nucleophosmin expression and various clinicopathological factors including Ki-67 expression was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Currently, it is accepted that risk assessment of clinical stage I (CS I) nonseminomatous germ cell tumors (NSGCT) patient is mainly dependent on the presence of lymphovascular invasion (LVI). Initial active surveillance, adjuvant chemotherapy and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) are acceptable treatment options for these patients, but there is no uniform consensus. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes of active surveillance with adjuvant chemotherapy...

INTRODUCTION: Age and Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) affect life expectancy (LE) and other-cause mortality (OCM) in non-metastatic prostate cancer (nmPCa) patients. We examined their ability to predict OCM in individuals treated with radical prostatectomy (RP), brachytherapy (BT), external beam radiation (EBRT) androgen deprivation (ADT) or observation. We postulated that these variables are not sufficient to explain OCM and LE patterns according to different treatment types. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We relied on the SEER-Medicare database from 1991 to 2009...
