Advantages of the procedure
The transperitoneal approach is a recommended surgery for tumors that are more anterior and are not easily accessible from the retroperitoneum. Retroperitoneal approach during RAPN could guarantee a more direct access to the kidney and renal hilum without bowel mobilization and an easier access to the lesions located at the level of the posterior face of the kidney. This could lead to a reduction of the operative time, to avoid extensive dissections, and in particular patients could decrease the incidence of perioperative complications.
This course is for urologists with previous experience on the robot, who want to learn or optimize the robot-assisted partial nephrectomy procedure. This course is not for robotic beginners.
