Renal pelvic tumors in selected patients with a solitary functional or anatomic kidney have been managed traditionally with parenchyma-sparing open conservative surgery. More recently, with the introduction of endourologic methods, percutaneous renal surgery has evolved and thus, much as in the case of bladder cancer, selected cases of renal pelvic tumors may be amenable to percutaneous treatment.
