Kidney cancer: Assessing the management of localized kidney cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

Abstract

Studies have reported an increase in the use of nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) since 2002, but quality of life (QOL) may be decreased in patients managed with partial versus radical nephrectomy. These reports have highlighted existing challenges in ensuring delivery of NSS in appropriate candidates while balancing risks to mortality, morbidity and QOL.
