Factors that affect proportional glomerular filtration rate after minimally invasive partial nephrectomy
Glomerular Filtration Rate
Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures
Lower preoperative proportional GFR, longer ischemia times, and higher blood loss all negatively impact postoperative proportional GFR while tumor complexity as gauged by morphometry scoring does not. Larger studies are needed to determine whether renal scintigraphy is a more accurate method of measuring the impact of the ischemia time on postoperative proportional GFR.
