RAPN with Intra Sinus Renal Vein Repair for Hilar Tumor


“The partial nephrectomy is the treatment of choice for small renal masses,” according to Dr. Anandan Murugesan, Consultant Urologist-Specialist in Robotic Surgery with the Kovai Medical Center and Hospitals, Coimbiatore. “Robot assisted surgery is preferred, especially for hilar tumors,” Murugesan tells the Robotic Surgeons Council of India.

He describes his steps of dissection, while using very crisp da Vinci robotic surgery video to show what is happening.
