  • Conversion to radical nephrectomy was rare in patients undergoing partial nephrectomy in this series. Increasing tumor size, central site, lower preoperative glomerular filtration rate and symptoms at presentation were associated with an increased risk of conversion, which increases the likelihood of chronic kidney disease postoperatively.
