Surgery is often the first step in treating kidney cancer, and new data questions whether removing only the tumor is better than removing the entire kidney.
Using robotic ultrasound probes for identification of kidney tumors during robotic partial nephrectomy offered the advantage of surgeon autonomy compared with the use of laparoscopic ultrasound probes.
A surgical technique known as intracorporeal cooling and extraction (ICE) may reduce the need for conventional open surgery in kidney cancer.
Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) for removal of a cancerous kidney led to a less painful recovery than did traditional multiport laparoscopy.
For patients with renal masses, use of partial nephrectomy increased from 15.3 to 24.7 percent.
