The authors investigated whether the Screening for Occult Renal Disease (SCORED) model could identify patients with renal masses who were at risk for having or developing chronic kidney disease (CKD). The results indicated that patients with unilateral T1a renal masses and high preoperative SCORED values had a greater prevalence of CKD before any intervention, and high SCORED values were associated with a higher risk for developing CKD after either nephron-sparing approaches or radical nephrectomy. Patients with high SCORED values should be counseled about their risk for having or developing CKD.
