Objective: The best therapeutic option for renal tumours smaller than 7 cm is partial nephrectomy. The aim of this study was to compare the positive surgical margin (PSM) rates, recurrence rates and oncological outcomes between laparoscopic partial nephrectomies and open partial nephrectomies at a single tertiary referral centre.
