Editor’s note: Laparoscopic radical neph-rectomy (LRN) is the standard treatment for localized small primary kidney tumors. Many studies have reported similar results in terms of safety and efficacy when comparing LRN with open radical nephrectomy (ORN) in renal tumors ≤7 cm in diameter (e.g. J Urol 2001;165:1867–70).
