BACKGROUND: Partial nephrectomy (PN) is recommended as first-line treatment for cT1 stage kidney tumors because of a better renal function and probably a better overall survival than radical nephrectomy (RN). For larger tumors, PN has a controversial position due to lack of evidence showing good cancer control. The aim of this study was to compare the results of PN and RN in cT2a stage on overall survival and oncological results. METHOD: A retrospective international multicenter study was conducted in the frame of the French kidney cancer research network (UroCCR)...

Executive functioning deficits have been documented among congenital heart disease (CHD) survivors and may contribute to emotional distress. Little research has investigated the role of coping in this association. This study examined the role of coping in accounting for the association between self-reported executive function problems and internalizing symptoms among adolescents and emerging adults (AEAs), as well as young adults (YAs) with CHD. Participants included 74 AEA ( M age  = 19.32  ±  3.47 years, range 15-25 years) and 98 YA CHD survivors ( M age  = 32...

INTRODUCTION: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is characterized by spinal inflammation and structural damage, primarily to the axial skeleton and sacroiliac joints. Between 25% and 70% of patients may experience progressive peripheral joint involvement, which, despite advancement in pharmacologic therapy, may necessitate surgical intervention. Total hip arthroplasty (THA) yields improved pain and functional outcomes for AS patients with hip involvement. It is unclear whether the annual rates of patients undergoing THA have changed due to newer pharmacologic management...

Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by chronic systemic and synovial inflammation, resulting in damage to both cartilage and bone. Medical treatment, which has increasingly relied upon disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), may fail to slow disease progression and limit joint damage, ultimately warranting surgical intervention. Up to 25% of RA patients will require lower extremity total joint arthroplasty. Though total hip arthroplasty (THA) is known to improve quality of life and functional measures, clarification is still required with respect to the impact of increased DMARD use on annual rates of THA...

Background: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is characterized by osteoproliferation-induced structural damage and spinal inflammation, which lead to spinal deformity and functional disability. Though AS commonly affects the axial skeleton and sacroiliac joints, up to 70% of patients have involvement of the knees and other joints. Despite pharmacological efforts, advancing joint involvement may ultimately require surgical intervention. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is effective in managing patients with AS, yet it remains unclear whether or not the annual rates of TKA have been affected...
