Case description

The video shows robotic laser partial kidney removal with no ischemia. Robotic laser partial nephrectomy has been limited by addressing warm and cold ischemia limits during resection. There currently is a lack of reliable means to achieve cold ischemia laparoscopically, and controversy exists as to the limits of warm ischemia before irreversible nephron death occurs. We describe a robotic partial nephrectomy technique with laser tissue welding using a Thullium laser and robotic arm adaptor to induce parenchymal resection and minimize hemorrhage whereby the vessels are not clamped during resection, with zero ischemia time.
