In this section there are two mini-reviews which act as updates on the modern surgical management of RCC, specifically relating to laparoscopic radical nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy. It is clear that the somewhat outdated idea of an open radical nephrectomy for all cases of RCC is no longer acceptable to patients, so it behoves us to adopt the newer treatment methods. The other mini-reviews describe the use of three-dimensional imaging in urology and the surgical alternatives for treating Peyronie's disease.
