    Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) has been underused because of its technical complexity and difficulty. We present a knotless and bolsterless technique that allows simultaneous repair of the pelvicaliceal system and compression of the parenchyma defect using a series of single-pass running sutures. We believe that this technique will simplify reconstruction and aid in popularization of LPN.
