BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) is emerging as an alternative to laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) for the treatment of small renal tumors. We compare the results of LPN and RAPN performed by a single surgeon. METHODS Data from 100 consecutive patients who underwent LPN (n=52) or RAPN (n=48) performed by a single experienced laparoscopic surgeon between October 2007 and June 2010 were analyzed retrospectively. Perioperative data, including clinical… CONTINUE READING
