Abstract

Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has evolved tremendously over the past decade to the point where it should be considered the standard of care for localized renal tumors not amenable to nephron-sparing surgery. The benefits of decreased postoperative pain, shortened hospital stay, quicker convalescence, and improved cosmesis have been proved in numerous studies. Long-term oncologic results of LRN have demonstrated equivalent outcomes to ORN.
