Neuropathic pain in the area of the GFN as a complication after laparoscopic donor nephrectomy is rarely reported [3].
After 23 years of follow-up, a patient that underwent radical nephrectomy for an ossifying renal tumor of infancy at the age of 4 months was found to have no evidence of recurrence on imaging [13].
showed that renal mass biopsy outperforms the RNS in discriminating between malignant versus benign tumors and low-risk versus high-risk tumors.[sup][19] The RNS was also reported to be a reproducible standardized classification system that quantitates the salient anatomy of renal tumors.[sup][5] A prospective study performed by Matos et al ., which included 71 patients, showed that the RNS was a good method in predicting surgical access route and type of nephrectomy, and the RNS was also associated with OT and WIT, but with weak accuracy.[sup][20] Kriegmair et al .
"The decision to focus on kidney cancer and the development of a surgical training model for robotassisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy was due to both my academic interest in the kidney and because the disease has personally affected my family."

Hemodynamic stability is as important as the other factors in influencing ischemia risk after partial nephrectomy.
Sutured renorrhaphy was carried out in 2 stages: the bed of the resection was sutured in a running fashion, using monofilament absorbable sutures or self-locking barbed suture (V-Loc 90; Covidien, Mansfield, Massachusetts) according to the surgeon's preference, and then the partial nephrectomy defect was closed by interrupted monofilament suture.
Fifty-six patients who underwent laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) due to renal tumors between May 2014 and October 2017 were included in the study.
