Evaluation of the extent of loss of renal function and survival in diabetic patients operated for renal cell carcinoma
In this observational, retrospective register-based cohort study, the outcome in renal function and overall survival after nephrectomy in patients with RCC and DM will be investigated and compared to a general population without DM receiving nephrectomy for RCC.
This study will investigate the outcome in renal function and overall survival after nephrectomy in patients with RCC and DM. These patients will be compared to a general population without DM receiving nephrectomy for RCC.
Description of the cohort

They will be compared with two matched control groups neither diagnosed with RCC nor operated with nephrectomy, with respectively healthy individuals and individuals with DM.

Patient Identification Number (PIN)
Date patient was recorded, as relevant, with:
