LIVE SURGERY - Robotic partial nephrectomy

Epublication WebSurg.com, Sep 2019;19(09). URL:
This video of a live surgery performed by Professor Christophe Vaessen (Paris, France) during the first IRCAD ,exclusive course in robotic urology very clearly demonstrates the landmarks and milestones for the execution of a robot-assisted partial nephrectomy using a posterior and extraperitoneal approach along with all the related tips and tricks. This is the case of a woman who consulted for hip pain and the MRI demonstrated 4 left kidney lesions. Professor Vaessen's laparoscopic skills and experience and the challenges of the procedure and their resolution, along with a dynamic Q&A and expert comments coming from the auditorium, make this video an essential educational tool to learn about partial kidney resections.
