Article title

Laparoscopic Live-Donor Nephrectomy With Retroperitoneoscopic Access


Title variants

Languages of publication



Live donation remains the single most consistent factor affecting long-term results of the transplantation. Open live donor nephrectomy is associated with high traumatization and possibility of complications due to large skin incision. The alternative is laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy (LDN) which is widely used in many countries. We present the case of LDN. The retroperitoneal approach was applied and time of operation was 210 min. The immediate function of transplanted kidney was observed. Authors hope that the offering this minimally invasive procedure to the potential donors may popularize the idea of live donation in Poland.
