Tumor Enucleation: Functional Comparison with Standard Partial Nephrectomy

View Poster


Tumor enucleation (TE) optimizes parenchymal preservation and could yield better function than standard partial nephrectomy (SPN). However, data about this are controversial. Our study compares functional outcomes for TE and SPN strategies.


Patients managed with partial nephrectomy (PN) with necessary data for analysis of preservation of ipsilateral parenchymal mass and global GFR from two centers were included. All studies were required
