Researchers examine procedure utilization trends in patients with clinically localized renal masses
Date:5/16/2011

phrectomy (LPN). Their results demonstrate that over the ten-year period, utilization of nephron-sparing techniquesor partial nephrectomyonly increased by 15.5%, whereas 77% of patients with localized tumors were still managed with radical nephrectomy in 2005.

"Studies like these highlight that practice patterns evolve slowly over time, but more research is necessary," says Smaldone. "We now need to further investigate which types of institutions are performing specific procedure types and which patients have access to kidney preserving surgeries. These studies will ultimately help to ensure that we are providing all patients access to the best possible care."

"It is important that patients seek out care from physicians with expertise in kidney preservation techniques," adds Uzzo. "The benefits of laparoscopy don't offset the consequences of removing a patient's entire kidney if it's avoidable, and often, at most expert centers, a patient can receive the benefits of both through a laparoscopic partial nephrectomy."
