Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy versus open donor nephrectomy: Outcomes from a single transplant center.

CONCLUSIONS: Data from our series demonstrate that outcomes and renal function follow up over time were similar among both groups. In expert hands, this altruistic procedure can be performed with a minimally invasive approach without an increased complication rate or compromising renal function in donors.

Conclusions: Careful evaluation of computed tomography angiography just before surgery will act like a global positioning system (GPS) for the operating surgeon. Rescue stitch is a saviour. Not to panic and being well versed with the risk reduction strategies of laparoscopy a nd rescue measures is of paramount importance.

Abstract Living-donor kidney transplantation is a well-established treatment of end-stage renal disease in Tunisia. Over the years, concerns have increased about the harmlessness of kidney donation. This longitudinal single center study was carried out to evaluate the safety of nephrectomy as well as further medical and surgical outcomes among donors. We collected and analyzed clinical, biological, biochemical and kidney size data at the time of nephrectomy and at M1, M3, M6, Y1, Y2, and Y4 after donation measured by ultrasound. All donor nephrectomies performed in the nephrology and transplantation unit of Sahlou...

To investigate whether patients requiring dialysis are a higher risk surgical population and would experience more peri-operative adverse events even when undergoing a perceived less invasive operation as a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN). LRN is generally a well-tolerated surgical procedure with minimal morbidity and mortality. Prior to transplantation, dialysis patients will often have to undergo a LRN to remove a native kidney with a suspicious mass.

Abstract Outcome of pediatric kidney transplantation (KT) has improved over the last several decades. We retrospectively reviewed the outcomes pediatric KT in King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center-Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Between May 2013 and November 2016, we performed renal transplantation in 47 children, 30 (64%) males, and 17 (36%) females. All patients received antibody induction with basiliximab or antithymocyte globulin along with triple immunosuppressive therapy with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and steroids. Twenty-four (51%) and 14 (30%) patients were on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialys...

This study was initiated in November 2017 and is expected to last for 2 years. To be eligible for the study, donors must be more than 20  years of age and must not be receiving permanent pain therapy. Only donors with a single artery and vein in the graft are being enrolled in this trial. Donors with infections or scars in the periumbilical or hypogastric area, bleeding disorders, chronic use of immunosuppressive agents, or active i nfection will be excluded. Donors will be randomly allocated to either a control arm (periumbilical incision) or an intervention arm (Pfannenstiel incision). The sample size was calculated...
