Abstract

We commend Dr Xing and colleagues for their interesting comparative analysis of treatment modalities for small renal masses in the July 2018 issue of Radiology (cf. Xing M, Kokabi N, Zhang D, Ludwig JM, Kim HS. Comparative effectiveness of thermal ablation, surgical resection, and active surveillance for T1a renal cell carcinoma: a Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)–Medicare-linked population study. Radiology 2018;288[1]:81–90). This is clearly an important clinical question. The authors made use of propensity score–matched observational data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)–Medicare database adjusted for 17 variables to compare cancer-specific and overall survival with partial nephrectomy (PN), radical nephrectomy (RN), thermal ablation (TA), and active surveillance (AS).
