abstract

  • NSS can be used to postpone, or eliminate the need for, nephrectomy in 94.3% of patients with centrally located tumors and can achieve oncologic disease control similar to that for exophytic lesions. These data indicate that NSS should be considered even for patients with centrally located tumors, taking into account that performing such surgery is a challenging task.
