Association of prevalence of benign pathologic findings after partial nephrectomy with preoperative imaging patterns in the United States from 2007 to 2014

JAMA Surgery Dec 08, 2018

Kim JH, et al. - Researchers investigate the annual trend of prevalence of benign pathologic findings after partial nephrectomy (PNx). Further, they determined the factors that can be associated with this prevalence. They performed a cohort study of 18,060 patients between 2007 and 2014, indicating the overall prevalence of benign pathologic findings after partial nephrectomy of 30.9%. Female sex, old age, and performance of computed tomographic imaging only as preoperative imaging modality were identified to influence the prevalence. Outcomes thus suggest a high prevalence of benign pathologic findings after partial nephrectomy. Clinicians are advised to focus more on possible risk factors, especially radiologic modalities to avoid unnecessary surgeries for renal mass.
