The resurgence of nephron-sparing surgery for selected renal masses has fueled interest in minimally invasive approaches. Several authors have shown that laparoscopic partial nephrectomy is feasible if two goals are met: resection of the mass with negative margins and control of bleeding. The latter is a particular challenge, but numerous options are available. The authors describe the operative technique and the available results of hand-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy.
