[Partial nephrectomy for renal masses >7cm: Morbidity, oncological and functional outcomes (UroCCR-7 study)]

To describe the morbidity, mortality, oncological and functional results of Partial nephrectomy (PN) for the treatment of renal tumors of more than 7cm.

Thirty-seven partial nephrectomies for tumors larger than 7cm operated in a single center between 1987 and 2016 were analyzed retrospectively. The pre, per and postoperative clinico-biological data were collected within the UroCCR database. The GFR was assessed at day 5, 1 month and last follow-up. Intraoperative and postoperative surgical complications, the recurrence rate and the overall and specific mortality were collected.

The mean age of the patients was 57 years (44-68). The preoperative GFR and the median tumor size were 80mL/min and 8cm, respectively. The indication for surgery was elective in 21 cases (60%) and 19 tumors (54%) were malignant. Postoperative complications occurred in 24,3 cases (24.3%). The median post-operative GFR was respectively 77mL/min, 80mL/min and 77mL/min at day 5, 1month and at last follow-up. With a median follow up of 31 months [1-168], 5 patients (26,3%) had metastatic progression of whom 1 (5.3%) had a concomitant local recurrence and 3 (15.8%) had died from cancer.

This study confirms the feasibility of PN for large tumors with acceptable morbidity, limited risk of local recurrence and excellent functional results.
