OBJECTIVE To present our robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) experience for renal masses ≥ 7 cm and compare the surgical outcomes in this cohort with those obtained for small (≤ 4 cm) renal masses. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed our institutional review board-approved RPN database and identified patients undergoing RPN for tumors ≥ 7 cm. Surgical technique, renal function, oncologic, and pathologic data were analyzed and compared with the RPN for renal masses ≤ 4 cm… CONTINUE READING
