Abstract

Nowadays, partial nephrectomy can be considered the gold standard for the treatment of localized renal tumors with a diameter of 4 cm or less (stage T1a).1Some authors affirm that there is no difference in the outcome even if the size is 7 cm or less (stage T1b)2: nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) guarantees local cancer control in the large majority of the patients, with preservation of renal function in those with elective indications.
