Perioperative outcomes of robotic partial nephrectomy for intrarenal tumors.

INTRODUCTION Intrarenal tumors pose a unique challenge to surgeons due to the lack of visual cues on the kidney surface. Intraoperative ultrasonography has facilitated the management of these tumors during minimally invasive partial nephrectomy. We sought to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and comparative effectiveness of robot-assisted partial… CONTINUE READING
