252 Robotic Partial Nephrectomies: Evolving Renorrhaphy Technique and Surgical Outcomes at a Single Institution.
In this retrospective study, in order to document the primary effect of parenchymal volume loss on postoperative renal functions, the authors have compared percent changes in eGFR and incidences of CKD-S in short, intermediate and in the long-term postoperative periods between 250 living kidney donor (DN) and 118 partial nephrectomies (PN) who were followed up to 20.3 months.
We found a decrease in kidney functions by about 20% in solitary operated kidney and by 10% in global function in partial nephrectomies. Progressive chronic kidney failure may also develop in acute period in addition to severe kidney damage that required dialysis in 1% of patients (18).
In this study, we evaluated differences in vascular control achieved with the Endo GIA stapler and Hem-o-lok polymer clips in laparoscopic nephrectomies performed in our center.
A total of 48 tumour resections were performed, 45 total nephrectomies and 3 had nephron sparing surgery (NSS).
(1) Most elective nephrectomies for the large eThekwini district are performed at St Aidan's hospital, excluding high-risk patients who are referred to a tertiary facility.
In contrast to the vast majority of cases of Wilms' Tumor in which the appropriate surgical management involves radical nephrectomy, the benign nature of ORTIs makes them amenable to partial nephrectomies. Indeed, various authors have reported good outcomes in cases of ORTI with partial nephrectomies as shown in Hu and colleagues' review of the literature [14].
With evolving technology open radical nephrectomy is rapidly being replaced with laparoscopic nephrectomy in developed world and number of nephron sparing nephrectomies is also on the rise, given the smaller size of tumor at diagnosis7.
In 2005, the United Network for Organ Sharing reported that 83% of all living donor nephrectomies in the United States were performed laparoscopically.

Five were carried out for suspected or confirmed cancer and the remaining 5 donor nephrectomies. All 8 cases presented with small bowel obstruction and required operative management.
