- To evaluate the accuracy of radius, exophytic/endophytic, nearness to collecting system/sinus, anterior/posterior, and location relative to polar lines (RENAL), preoperative aspects and dimensions used for anatomical classification (PADUA), contact surface area (CSA), and preoperative assessment of volume preservation (PAVP) nephrometry scores in predicting postoperative renal functional outcomes after partial nephrectomy (PN). Few studies have compared the accuracy of tumor complexity systems directly in the same set of PN patients.
- To examine the relationship between the use and results of early confirmatory testing and persistence on active surveillance (AS).
- To evaluate the integration of 3T nonendorectal coil multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) at 2 high-volume practices that routinely use mpMRI in the setting of active surveillance.
- To retrospectively evaluate clinical predictors of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients to identify associations between patient- and tumor-specific factors with poorer renal function. CKD and RCC are interrelated, with 26%-44% of RCC patients having concomitant CKD at diagnosis.
