Robotic kidney transplantation.

CONCLUSIONS: Robotic renal transplantation is a feasible surgical technique with interesting functional results. As a minimally invasive route, it is a promising option to reduce the surgical morbidity inherent to the renal transplant. PMID: 28530626 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic resection for advanced CRC in organ transplant recipients is technically feasible and therapeutically safe, and seems to have the advantages of few postoperative complications, short recovery time, and acceptable oncological outcomes.

Morbid obesity is a barrier to kidney transplantation due to inferior outcomes, including higher rates of new‐onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT), delayed graft function (DGF), and graft failure. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) increases transplant eligibility by reducing BMI in kidney transplant candidates, but the effect of surgical weight loss on posttransplantation outcomes is unknown. Reviewing single‐center medical records, we identified all patients who underwent LSG before kidney transplantation from 2011‐2016 (n = 20). Post‐LSG kidney recipients were compared with similar‐BMI rec...

CONCLUSION: We found a low rate of major and minor complications, independent of surgical technique, after living donor nephrectomy. There was no elevated complication rate in obese donors. In contrast, elderly donors>70 years had an elevated risk for perioperative complications. PMID: 28871572 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Donors should not have to incur costs or a financial burden to donate; the transplant community should strive to make donation financially neutral.

Abstract Morbid obesity is a barrier to KT due to inferior outcomes, including higher rates of new‐onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT), delayed graft function (DGF), and graft failure. LSG increases transplant eligibility by reducing body mass index (BMI) in KT candidates, but the effect of surgical weight loss on post‐transplant outcomes is unknown. Reviewing single‐center medical records, we identified all patients who underwent LSG prior to KT from 2011‐2016 (n=20). Post‐LSG kidney recipients were compared with similar‐BMI recipients who did not undergo LSG, using 2:1 direct matching for patient fac...

CONCLUSIONS: The results for laparoscopic donor nephrectomy were comparable to those for open donor nephrectomy, and its acceptability was high. Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy should be the preferred approach for procuring the kidney graft. PMID: 28810824 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsSG is technically feasible after LT and resulted in weight loss without adversely affecting graft function and immunosuppression. However, morbidity and mortality are high.

In conclusion, we believe it is feasible, safe and effective to use URS or flexible URS combining holmium laser lithotripsy on extracorporeal living donor kidney. PMID: 28726586 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic living donor nephrectomies had been performed successfully with improvement of surgical parameter in due time. Thus, laparoscopic approach has entered a new era for kidney procurement in Indonesia. PMID: 28734658 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
