Introduction: The three dimensions (3D) virtual reality is a widespread technology that started gaining field at medicine in the last decades. This report demonstrates the use of pre-operative volumetric three dimensions rendering images to plan and guide laparoscopic partial nephrectomies for intra-renal lesions.

Case reports: We present two cases, one with left partially endophytic upper polar mass and other with right endophytic upper polar Bosniak III renal cyst. Three dimensional renderization was done using the open-source software: OsiriX®. It was utilized to guide lesion specific resection in the operative field. Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy was performed uneventfully in both patients in a relatively short timing and minimal blood loss.

Conclusion: Despite the incommodious application of the advanced 3D volumetric rendering in skillful surgical procedures, it allows better expectation of surgical challenging tasks with resultant good surgical and oncological outcome.
