OBJECTIVE To report our initial experience with the novel 3-dimensional (3D) image analysis system Synapse Vincent in clampless partial nephrectomy (PN), describing its advantages with regard to short-term surgical outcomes and its usefulness as an informed consent tool. METHODS Twenty-six patients with renal cell carcinoma underwent clampless PN navigated with the aid of case-specific 3D anatomic video images of the kidney, after surgical simulation using the same video system.
