Comparison of oncology outcomes after nephron-sparing surgery and radical ephrectomy for T1b renal tumors. Literature overview.


The main and most effective way of treating kidney tumors is surgical operation. For many years radical nephrectomy has been considered as a gold standard for treating kidney tumors. However, there is a tendency to choose a nephron-sparing surgery as an alternative. When radical nephrectomy is performed, tumor-damaged kidney is removed, so the remaining kidney must perform both functions. The aim of a nephron-sparing surgery is to completely eliminate the tumor and preserve the optimal function of the remaining part of the kidney. It is important to consider the outcomes of nephron-sparing surgery and radical nephrectomies when choosing which one of operations to perform for T1b kidney tumors
