V7-09: Salvage robotic kidney surgery after complications of robotic partial nephrectomy
VideoIntroductions and Objectives
Major complications of robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) are rare, particularly the need for surgical intervention. In this video, we show two cases of salvage kidney surgery following complications of RPN and demonstrate the challenges involved.
The first patient had undergone a right lower pole heminephrectomy for a 3-cm hilar tumor abutting the renal pelvis. Post-operatively, he developed a urine leak, which resolved with percutaneous drainage and a ureteral stent. At 6-month follow-up, he presented with right hydronephrosis and
