Oncologic outcomes comparison of partial ureterectomy and radical nephroureterectomy for urothelial carcinoma
BMC Urology Dec 04, 2019
Li S, et al. - From 2007 to 2014, 255 people with upper tract urothelial carcinomas (UTUCs) who underwent partial ureterectomy (PU) or radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) in a hospital database were examined in order to evaluate the oncological outcomes between PU and RNU. A shorter survival span was suffered by individuals with a high pT stage (pT2–4). No important variations in cancer-specific survival (CSS) between PU and RNU were noted. In the sub-analysis, for pTa–1 or pT2–4 tumor individuals, CSS for RNU and PU showed no notable variation. Thus, in oncologic outcomes, PU is non-inferior to RNU. Moreover, in comparison with RNU, PU is generally identified with less invasive and superior renal function preservation. Thus, for particular people with UTUCs, PU would be rational.Go to Original
