Abstract / Description of output

Kidney cancer surgeons from North America have provided technological innovation and demonstrated excellent clinical outcomes from high-volume centres. The results presented by high-volume US centres provide a benchmark standard for those practicing in other settings. However, the aim of this comment is to make observations regarding the care that the majority of patients undergoing renal cancer surgery receive in USA and contrast these with outcomes following nephrectomy in the UK. Observations are made using large published US database series and the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) nephrectomy data, which has become the first set of individual British urologist level data to be made publically available This article is protected by copyright.
