Investigation of forces involved in closure of the renal remnant after simulated partial nephrectomy.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the potential biomechanical causes of the complications of partial nephrectomy (PN) in a preclinical model of sliding-clip renorrhaphy. PN is a reference standard for amenable small renal masses. One disadvantage of PN, however, is the risk of postoperative bleeding and/or urinary leak. MATERIALS AND METHODS Simulated tumor… (More)
