Radical nephrectomy with inferior vena cava thrombectomy (RN-IVCT) is a complicated procedure for which the impact of hospital case volume on overall survival (OS) is unknown.

To evaluate the relationship between hospital volume and intermediate and long-term patient survival for patients undergoing nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is known to metastasize to almost every organ. A well-recognized phenomenon in RCC is late metastatic recurrence after nephrectomy which is arbitrarily defined as more than ...
Centralization of radical cystectomy (RC) to "high volume" centers can lead to decreased morbidity but also limits access to care. In the context of centralization, there is a need to systematically d...
Few studies have addressed the relationship between the occurrence of adverse events (AEs) associated with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and hospital case volume or the experie...
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for 3% of all adult malignancies and is known for its poor prognosis. At the time of diagnosis up to 30% of patients will present with metastasis. We report multipl...
The study will examine which differences there are in comorbidity and complications collected retrospectively from medical records compared with data collected prospectively in two groups ...
The study compare the standard treatment with nephrectomy + sunitinib to treatment with sunitinib alone without nephrectomy. This study will be the first trial on this competitive context
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...
Objectives: To describe and analyze the perioperative and functional evolution of short-term renal graft in patients with kidney transplantation from a live donor, comparing three surgical...
To demonstrate that Robotic-Assisted partial nephrectomy is superior to Open partial nephrectomy in reducing the number of 30 day post-operative complications (Clavien-Dindo Type I-V) for ...
A system for classifying patient care by relating common characteristics such as diagnosis, treatment, and age to an expected consumption of hospital resources and length of stay. Its purpose is to provide a framework for specifying case mix and to reduce hospital costs and reimbursements and it forms the cornerstone of the prospective payment system.
The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).
The univalent radical OH. Hydroxyl radical is a potent oxidizing agent.
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
