To investigate the impact of hospital volume on short‐term outcomes after cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
We identified mRCC patients who underwent CN from 2006 to 2013 in the National Cancer Database. Annual hospital CN volume was categorized as high (top 20th percentile) and low. Multivariable logistic regressions were used to compare...
To evaluate the impact of hospital volume on outcomes of robot‐assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
Materials and Methods
Patients with renal cell carcinoma who underwent RAPN between 2010 and 2013 were identified in the National Cancer Database. Hospital yearly RAPN volume was categorized into groups by sorting patients as closely as possible into five groups of equal size (quintiles):...
