In recent years the incidence of small renal carcinoma is increasing, and nephron sparing surgery(NSS) becomes the mainstream to treat it. NSS is considered based on comprehensive analysis: the imaging examination, systemic evaluation of the patients, and the indications of NSS. There are three common surgical approaches: intraperitoneal approach, retroperitoneal approach and the joint approach. It is recommended to do intraoperative frozen pathology. If the edge is positive, it is better to cut a deeper layer of the tissue around the renal tumor or transform to radical nephrectomy...

Although nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) has demonstrated benefit in terms of renal function preservation, it is unclear whether NSS might also decrease the risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) relative to radical nephrectomy (RN). In the current paper, we aimed to report the rate and the predictors of ESRD after surgery, accounting for detailed individual baseline characteristics and comorbidities. A multi-institutional collaboration among five European tertiary care centers allowed study of 2027 patients with normal preoperative renal function and a clinically localized T1abN0M0 renal mass...

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)...

BACKGROUND: There is a need for controlled trials to guide the perioperative management of patients undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). The authors performed a pilot multicenter trial to compare two types of saline delivery devices in this population. METHODS: Patients were randomized to high volume saline irrigation with a squeeze bottle and low volume saline spray after ESS in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Surgeons were blinded to treatment, and one-month postoperative scores for sinonasal outcomes [Sinonasal Outcome Test-22 (SNOT-22)] scale, nasal and sinus symptom score (NSS), and perioperative sinus endoscopy (POSE) scale were compared with preoperative scores...

PURPOSE: The change in functional renal volume (FRV) has an absolute influence on renal function after nephrectomy (Nx) or nephron-sparing surgery (NSS). In this study, we prospectively examined whether the postoperative renal function following Nx and NSS could be accurately predicted and assessed the reproducibility of our newly developed 3-D image reconstruction system (Kashihara) to measure the FRV. METHODS: We enrolled 98 patients who underwent Nx and 41 patients who underwent NSS from April 2006 to September 2009 to predict postoperative FRV and renal function...

BACKGROUND: Recently studies have demonstrated improved outcomes in patients undergoing nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) for low stage renal tumors, thus NSS is widely accepted as the treatment option for these patients. With NSS, there is a risk of renal hemorrhage and thus haemostatic agents may be routinely applied to the cut surface of the kidney. Herein we compare two commercially available haemostatic agents applied intra-operatively to the cut surface of the kidney. Post-operative outcomes (oncologic and non-oncologic) are reported...
