This study demonstrates the regionalization of specialized, technically demanding surgical procedures such as partial nephrectomy to major tertiary care centers teaching facilities, it is alarming that anatomically despite the adoption of partial nephrectomy as oncologically viable process in sensitive tumors. More than half of all tumors u003c 2cm and 80 percent of tumors 2 – 4cm in diameter still managed with radical nephrectomy the contribution of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has to open as an alternative to partial nephrectomy or quantified and, the under-utilization of nephron sparing promote approaches.

Over time, however, experience with nephron sparing surgery and now have laparoscopic oncologic equipoise have demonstrated and thus to improve the quality of life for the patients have compared in contrast to those of radical nephrectomy for localized renal tumors.Continue Reading
