PURPOSE: Patients with localised renal cell carcinoma (RCC) receiving curative surgery, either radical or partial nephrectomy, have been shown in contemporary studies to develop recurrence within 5 years in 20-30% of case. Therefore, post-operative follow-up (FU) imaging plays a crucial role in detecting recurrent or metastatic disease. A number of prognostic scores have been developed to predict risk of recurrence. This review summarises the current knowledge on established FU protocols and their limitations...

INTRODUCTION: Single institution studies suggest a benefit of a week of preoperative antibiotics prior to percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). These studies are limited by lower quality methodology such as the inclusion of heterogeneous populations or the use of non-standard definitions of sepsis. The American Urological Association (AUA) Best Practice Statement recommends <24 hours of IV antibiotics, but no other data exist about the duration/benefit of preoperative antibiotics. We sought to perform a rigorous (using CONSORT guidelines), multi-institutional trial to assess preoperative antibiotics in PCNL patients at low risk of developing infections...
