abstract

  • Partial nephrectomy should be considered a diagnostic and therapeutic surgical approach for renal cortical masses. Conventional clear cell carcinoma is the most frequent histologic subtype and is associated with a less favorable outcome compared with papillary carcinoma and chromophobe carcinoma. Radical nephrectomy for renal lesions that could be removed by partial nephrectomy will risk renal impairment in a substantial proportion of patients with benign disease.
