abstract

  • Cold intravascular perfusion during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy can achieve renal hypothermia below 15C. It is not associated with an immediate risk of renal vascular injury or thrombosis, as measured by Doppler echography in this series. Early changes in postoperative estimates of renal function appear minimal.
