  • The outcome of nephron-sparing surgical management of small renal masses is generally favorable, specifically in terms of long term renal function, overall survival, and oncologic outcomes. Given the overall prognosis and renal function preservation, transplantation of kidneys with small renal masses has increasingly been accepted as a donor option for renal transplantation. We present a case of an incidental renal mass on preoperative donor transplant evaluation and subsequent ex-vivo donor partial nephrectomy at the time of renal transplantation.
