Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate predictors of long‐term survival for patients with chronic kidney disease primarily due to surgery (CKD‐S). Patients with CKD‐S have generally good survival that approximates patients who do not have CKD even after renal cancer surgery (RCS), yet there may be heterogeneity within this cohort. Patients and MethodsFrom 1997‐2008, 4,246 patients underwent RCS at our center. Median follow‐up was 9.4 years (IQR=7.3‐11.0). New baseline GFR was defined as highest GFR between nadir and 6 weeks after surgery. We retrospectively evaluated 3 cohorts: no‐CKD (new baseline GFR≥60ml/min/1....
