Bottom Line: In comparison to an open procedure, the laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has demonstrated advantages in regard to perioperative morbidity, postoperative pain, time of hospitalization, and convalescence.The authors present a case of a large-volume- T2 renal tumor treated laparoscopically.The aim of the study is to present the operative technique and to discuss several unique problems that arise during the laparoscopic procedure in patients with large renal masses.

ABSTRACT
In comparison to an open procedure, the laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has demonstrated advantages in regard to perioperative morbidity, postoperative pain, time of hospitalization, and convalescence. However, most series of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy are confined to T1 tumors. The authors present a case of a large-volume- T2 renal tumor treated laparoscopically. The aim of the study is to present the operative technique and to discuss several unique problems that arise during the laparoscopic procedure in patients with large renal masses.

Figure 0001: CT – large volume tumor in the left kidney.

Mentions: A 64-year-old man with no essential medical history was admitted to our center because of the left renal tumor, which was diagnosed by a primary urologist. The physical examination revealed a palpable mass in the left upper part of the abdomen. The diagnostic evaluation, i.e. ultrasound and CT showed a large volume tumor (11 cm in diameter) in the mid-lower part of the left kidney (Fig. 1). CT and chest X-ray were negative for metastatic disease. There were no abnormalities in routine laboratory examinations. The patient was then qualified for surgical treatment, i.e. left transperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy.
