Purpose The purpose of the study was to evaluate the accuracy of the American College of Surgeons NSQIP Surgical Risk Calculator for predicting risk-adjusted 30-day outcomes for patients undergoing partial nephrectomy (PN) for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Methods A single institution, multi-surgeon, prospectively maintained database was queried for patients undergoing PN for RCC from 1998 to 2015. 21 preoperative factors were analyzed for each patient with predicted risk for 30-day complications, mortality, and length of stay (LOS) calculated. Differences between the mean predicted risk and observed rate of surgical outcomes were determined using two-sided one-sample t test with significance at p < 0.05. Subgroup analyses of outcomes stratified by surgical approach were also performed. Results 470 patients undergoing PN for RCC were analyzed. Comparing NSQIP predicted to observed outcomes, clini- cally significant underestimations occurred with rates of overall complications (9.16 vs. 16.81%, p < 0.001), surgical site infections [SSI] (1.65 vs. 2.77%, p < 0.001), urinary tract infection [UTI] (1.41 vs. 3.40%, p < 0.001), and LOS (3.25 vs. 3.73 days, p < 0.001). On subgroup analysis, 209 open PN and 261 minimally invasive PN (MIPN) were performed. The NSQIP calculator consistently underestimated overall complications, SSI, UTI, and LOS
