Purpose We evaluated the long-term natural history of renal function after radical cystectomy with urinary diversion and determined factors associated with decreased renal function. Materials and Methods We reviewed the records of 1,631 patients who underwent radical cystectomy between 1980 and 2006. The estimated glomerular filtration rate was calculated preoperatively and at various intervals after surgery. A renal function decrease was defined as a greater than 10 ml per minute/1.73 m2 reduction in the estimated glomerular filtration rate. Multivariate analysis was done to evaluate the association of clinicopathological features, incontinent vs continent diversion type and postoperative complications with decreased renal function… (ver más)
