AUA 2019 showcased some exciting research in the kidney cancer podium and moderated poster sessions. Common themes of the approximately 180 presented abstracts addressed renal mass biopsy, diagnostic imaging, active surveillance, partial nephrectomy for tumors >4cm, renal function outcomes, surveillance imaging, predictors of outcome and response to systemic therapy, and cytoreductive nephrectomy (inspired by CARMENA). Some of these outstanding abstracts are highlighted in this Take Home Messages presentation given on May 6, 2019, as well as insights into how the results could impact the care of our patients with kidney cancer.
