Abstract

The authors describe an original haemostasis technique during partial nephrectomy, combining provisional pressure haemostasis of the renal parenchyma using atraumatic vascular clamps, and application of haemostatic sutures on a strip of Gore-Tex Reinforcement Tissue. This technique, which has been used three times, appears to be simple, facilitates exposure of the renal section, and ensures effective haemostasis. It does not require control or clamping of the pedicle or local hypothermia. No postoperative complication (urinary fistula, secondary haemorrhage, Gore Tex infection) was observed.
