  • We found no evidence that elderly patients experience a proportionally higher complication rate, longer operative times or higher estimated blood loss from partial nephrectomy than do younger patients. Given the advantages of renal function preservation we should expand the use of nephron sparing treatment to renal tumors in elderly patients.
