Abstract

The authors suggest a new approach to kidney tumors: the xypho-umbilical-subcostal flap incision. This incision offers the advantages of the transverse as well as of the longitudinal approaches and gives a very satisfactory exposure of the surgical field. The authors report 52 cases of renal tumors operated on by this approach in the last 5 years: because of the optimal view it allows and of the lack of complications they suggest this incision as a method of choice in the majority of cases of renal tumor.
