Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Patients 18 and older.
Patients willing and able to sign consent.
Patients with an organ confined renal mass planning to undergo a robotic assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
Patient with Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) equal to or greater than 40.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients under 18.
Patients with Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) less than 40.
Patients with non-organ confined renal masses (invading renal vein, inferior vena cava, peri-renal tissue, ipsilateral adrenal gland, or metastasis).
Patients with bilateral synchronous renal masses.
Patients who can not discontinue Plavix, Coumadin or other anti-platelet or anti-coagulant medications.
Patients with renal lesions determined to be too complex to perform a RAPN without clamp by the surgeon. (The renal mass may be deemed too difficult based on pre-operatively radiological findings. The surgeon's decision to exclude a mass from a robotic assisted partial nephrectomy would be based on a higher risk of positive margin or complication if a RAPN was performed.)
