Abstract

Micro-Abstract To identify variations in renal function and histology between Caucasian Americans (CA) and African Americans (AA) undergoing robotic nephron-sparing surgery (NSS), a retrospective chart review was performed on patients who underwent NSS. Postoperatively, AA experienced a greater increase in serum creatinine. Final histology demonstrated greater incidence of papillary renal cell carcinoma in AA and increased likelihood for type II papillary renal cell carcinoma, a more aggressive histology.
