Currently, small renal masses account for the largest proportion of renal tumour and small renal cell carcinomas (RCC). Although partial nephrectomy, whenever possible, is recognized as the gold standard for treatment, thermal ablation has gained increasing attention as optional treatment in a population sector harbouring small renal masses/small RCCs. The purpose of this review is to update comparative outcomes between these two options of treatment.

To contrast the clinical effects and complications for the treatment of T1 renal carcinoma in partial nephrectomy (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN).
It remains unclear whether laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for primary treatment of small renal masses is similar to partial nephrectomy (PN) in terms of long-term oncological and renal fun...
To compare perioperative outcomes of robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RaPN) with open partial nephrectomy (OPN).
To compare the short-term outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN) and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) when performed by highly experienced surgeons.
To compare perioperative, functional, and oncological outcomes between laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) and robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) for renal tumors >4 cm.
The therapeutic effectiveness of ultrasound guided cooled-probe microwave ablation and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy on T1a renal cell carcinoma is compared to find a better approach fo...
Currently, partial nephrectomy (PN) is considered as the gold standard treatment modality for small renal masses. In this setting, robot-assisted and conventional laparoscopic approaches a...
After partial nephrectomy, kidney function decreases by about 10% overall and by about 20% in the operated kidney. This is primarily due to the loss of healthy parenchymal volume during re...
Patients with renal cancer are commonly treated by robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. Renal artery clamping is commonly required inducing kidney ischemia during surgery. It impacts parenc...
Both laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) and robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) can be performed through transperitoneal (TP) or retroperitoneal (RP) approach. RP approach is less utiliz...
Partial or total removal, ablation, or destruction of the cerebral cortex; may be chemical. It is not used with animals that do not possess a cortex, i.e., it is used only with mammals.
Removal of tissue by vaporization, abrasion, or destruction. Methods used include heating tissue by hot liquids or microwave thermal heating, freezing (CRYOABLATION), chemical ablation, and photoablation with LASERS.
Drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. They are divided into two main classes: "first-line" agents, those with the greatest efficacy and acceptable degrees of toxicity used successfully in the great majority of cases; and "second-line" drugs used in drug-resistant cases or those in which some other patient-related condition has compromised the effectiveness of primary therapy.
A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).
An endocrine state in men, characterized by a significant decline in the production of TESTOSTERONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and other hormones such as HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE. Andropause symptoms are related to the lack of androgens including DEPRESSION, sexual dysfunction, and OSTEOPOROSIS. Andropause may also result from hormonal ablation therapy for malignant diseases.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
