PARTIAL NEPHRECTOMY: ANALYSIS OF 10-YEAR OUTCOMES
Keywords:kidney, tumor, carcinoma, warm ischemia, nephrectomy
Objectives. Partial nephrectomy is considered the standard of care in patients with cT1 renal tumor masses and in patients with renal cell carcinoma ⩾4 cm. The aim of the study was the evaluation of surgical and oncological outcomes in patients with renal tumors of optimal strategies for patients with localized renal cancer.
Methods. The retrospective pilot study based on a group of 86 patients who underwent surgical intervention by open partial nephrectomy during 2014-2023, at the Department of Urology the “Timofei Moşneaga” Republican Clinical Hospital.
Results. The choice of surgery method was based on the relatively small volume of the tumor <7 cm and its localization, obtaining a survival rate of 100% during 10 years.
Conclusions. Partial nephrectomy with warm ischemia is valuable when we assume that intraoperative complications and a difficult reconstruction of the kidneys can occur due to the complexity of the tumor ensuring a low risk of intraoperative bleeding.
