The relationship of postoperative complications with in-hospital outcomes and costs after renal surgery for kidney cancer
BJU International, 05/15/2012
Kim SP et al. – With about a quarter of patients experiencing postoperative complications, adverse events for open radical nephrectomy, laparoscopic radical nephrectomy, and open partial nephrectomy carry a significant risk of in–hospital death and higher total costs. Efforts to reduce postoperative complications may correlate with substantial reductions in hospital mortality and total costs.
