Abstract

Our results suggest that the quantity of parenchyma preserved is the main determinant of the postoperative glomerular filtration rate after partial nephrectomy as long as limited warm ischemia or hypothermia is used. Even poorly functioning kidneys recover well from the ischemic insult proportionate to the amount of parenchyma preserved.
