Développement de la néphrectomie partielle robotisée: avantages

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2011, vol. 7, no. 320, p. 2410-3
Abstract Surgery is the first line of treatment of renal cell carcinoma. For small tumours confined to the kidney (< or = 4 cm), partial tumour resection has logically become the standard treatment. When technically feasible, partial nephrectomy may be applied to treat tumors less than 7 cm, according to 2010 recommendations of the European Association of Urology. In addition, nephron-sparing surgery has proven to positively impact on quality of life. Robotic-assisted laparoscopy partial kidney resection has recently emerged. Its indications are as yet undergoing validation, while open surgery still remains the gold standard. For the patients, the consequences of this minimally invasive evolution are evident: The comfort and postoperative recovery are respectively greater and faster compared to conventional open surgery.
