Is robotic technology facilitating the minimally invasive approach to partial nephrectomy?

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: • To establish its current status, this study reviews the literature, and reports developments in robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN), highlighting results from various studies that investigate the oncological and functional efficacy of RPN. Partial nephrectomy has become the standard therapy for the management of small renal masses. In an effort to overcome the perioperative morbidity associated with an open approach, and the extended warm ischaemia times associated with a...
