Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery radical nephrectomy.


:The indications, instrumentation, surgical technique, and complications of laparoendoscopic single-site radical nephrectomy (LESS-RN) are being described in detail in an attempt to familiarize urologists with this novel laparoscopic technique. Our initial experience of 30 consecutive cases of LESS-RN is reported. The results indicate that, in experienced hands, LESS-RN is feasible and safe, with results comparable to those of conventional laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Nevertheless, larger series of patients are needed to prove if the increased technical difficulty of LESS-RN justifies its use in routine urologic practice.

  • The Expanded Use of Percutaneous Resection for Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma: A 30-Year Comprehensive Experience.

    abstract:INTRODUCTION:The gold standard treatment for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is radical nephroureterectomy (RNU). The role of endoscopic resection is limited to low-risk patients. In this study, we present our 30-year experience in the endoscopic management of UTUC. METHODS:In this retrospective study, we iden...
