: Background: Minimally invasive surgery is used only in selected cases of renal masses greater than 7 cm, and few studies exist in this setting. This study aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a laparoscopic surgical approach for the treatment of large renal tumors using a standardized technique.

Although significant difference in terms of age and American Society of Anesthesiologists score were detected, the two groups did not differ in mean operative time (130 minutes standard deviation [SD] ± 64 versus 148 minutes DS ± 56; P = .376), intraoperative complications (0% versus 8.3%; P = .508), need for postoperative transfusion (12% versus 12%; P > .999), and length of stay (3.38 DS ± 0.62 days versus 3.92 DS ± 2.47; P = .313). One patient had a local recurrence and died ∼13 months after surgery. Furthermore, 2 patients developed trocar-site incisional hernia in Group B. Conclusion: In this cohort of patients, LN for large renal tumors appeared to be safe and feasible. Larger mass dimension does not appear to influence the outcomes when the surgery is performed using a standardized technique by experienced surgeons.

Abstract

: Background: Minimally invasive surgery is used only in selected cases of renal masses greater than 7 cm, and few studies exist in this setting. This study aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a laparoscopic surgical approach for the treatment of large renal tumors using a standardized technique. Materials and Methods: Data of patients who underwent laparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) using the transperitoneal approach were retrospectively evaluated from December 2019 to September 2022. The study population was divided into two groups: patients with renal masses <7 cm (Group A) and those with renal masses ≥7 cm in diameter (Group B). The intraoperative and postoperative outcomes were compared. Results: Forty patients were enrolled (16 in Group A and 24 in Group B) in this study. Although significant difference in terms of age and American Society of Anesthesiologists score were detected, the two groups did not differ in mean operative time (130 minutes standard deviation [SD] ± 64 versus 148 minutes DS ± 56; P = .376), intraoperative complications (0% versus 8.3%; P = .508), need for postoperative transfusion (12% versus 12%; P > .999), and length of stay (3.38 DS ± 0.62 days versus 3.92 DS ± 2.47; P = .313). One patient had a local recurrence and died ∼13 months after surgery. Furthermore, 2 patients developed trocar-site incisional hernia in Group B. Conclusion: In this cohort of patients, LN for large renal tumors appeared to be safe and feasible. Larger mass dimension does not appear to influence the outcomes when the surgery is performed using a standardized technique by experienced surgeons.
