Abstract

Text-Size + 

  • Laparoscopic management of kidney cancer is becoming accepted as an alternative to open radical nephrectomy. Technical considerations have limited the application of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy to relatively small, clinically localized tumors. At the National Cancer Institute, we have broadened the indications to include bulky tumors. Herein, we describe the operation with attention to the technical caveats that have been gained with experience.
