Abstract

Robotic partial nephrectomy is an emerging procedure. The Washington University Renorrhaphy involves robotic assistance, rapid closure of the collecting system, and renorrhaphy with sliding nonabsorbable clips. Bolsters are rarely used. Preliminary results have shown very short ischemic times with few complications. This communication offers a short video describing the renorrhaphy.
