Nowadays, with the accuracy of the modern imaging techniques, the diagnosis of incidental renal tumors has become increasingly frequent. These tumors are often small in size and minimally invasive procedures represent an optimal indication to perform nephron-sparing surgery (NSS). In addition, the oncological results are comparable to the open approach. This video shows a right laparoscopic partial nephrectomy in a 52-year-old woman.
