Minimal mortality of renal surgery.


Journal Article

Eight hundred fourteen renal operative procedures were reviewed to determine overall mortality and to identify patients at risk. The over-all mortality was 1.35%, but as high as 30% in patients with uremia and spesis. Carcinomatosis contributed to higher mortality in other groups. In the absence of these three factors renal surgery was associated with very low or no postoperative (thirty day) mortality.
