Title: Step 5. Hemostasis and renorrhaphy
Author: Evangelos Liatsikos
- Hemostasis at the site of the renal lesion after the excision of the tumor is possible with the use of the bipolar forceps.
- Sliding clip renorrhapy is performed. A first deep layer is performed initially. This layer aims into limiting the bleeding from the bed of the lesion and to close any communications to the pelvicalyceal system. The second layer approximate or closes the opening of the lesion and provides additional hemostasis.
