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]

Rationale: Renal cell carcinoma associated with Xp11.2 translocations/TFE3 gene fusions is a rare subtype of renal cell carcinoma. This predominantly occurs in juveniles, but rarely seen in adults with lymph node or organic metastasis and a worsened prognosis. Patients concerns: Herein, we presented 3 adult cases of Xp11-RCC. Two patients were in early stage and good condition, and the third patient had lymph node metastasis but showed no recurrence after a 3-month follow-up. Diagnoses: Case 1: A 50-year-old female without any lumbago and gross hematuria was incidentally detected by left renal mass by ultrasonogr...
We present a case report and review of the literature for total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy for a patient with prior bilateral renal transplant. PMID: 29791697 [PubMed - in process]
AbstractPurpose of reviewOrgan transplantations often include major incisions that can be associated with significant postoperative pain. While these patients may theoretically benefit from regional anesthesia, many practitioners have avoided such techniques due to considerations, such as a low perceived benefit if the patient stays intubated postoperatively and concerns about the coagulation status in patients with end-stage liver/kidney disease and perioperative use of anticoagulation.Recent findingsWith refinements in both surgical (laparoscopic and robot-assisted procedures) and regional anesthesia techniques (ultrasou...

There is a great shift through laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, as open surgery have almost faded except for some key interventions, such as kidney transplantation. Various authors proposed minimally invasive transplantation techniques and successful outcomes. Robotic kidney transplantation, first described by Hoznek and colleagues have been improved and partly universalized by investigators like Oberholzer and Menon. With the assistance of Dr. Rajesh Ahlawat from India, we initiated robotic kidney transplantation (RKT) in our clinic in December 2015.
We describe a successfully performed laparoscopic pyelo-ureterostomy between the graft kidney and native ureter for a long segment recurrent distal ureteral stricture in a 40 year old female.
AbstractRobotic-assisted kidney transplantation (RKT) with the Da Vinci (Intuitive, USA) platform has been recently developed to improve outcomes by decreasing surgical site complications and morbidity, especially in obese patients. This potential paradigm shift in the surgical technique of kidney transplantation is performed in only a few centers. For wider adoption of this high stake complex operation, we aimed to develop a procedure-specific simulation platform in a porcine model for the training of robotic intracorporeal vascular anastomosis and evaluating vascular anastomoses patency. This paper describes the requirem...
