CT angiography of the donor showed us there were bilateral renal double artery and a tortuous aorta that is deviated to the left side. The main artery cannot be reached by laparoscopy because of the upper level of renal artery and deviation of the aorta and an open conversion was performed. Presence of tortuous aorta with mul...

ConclusionsFor patients with anatomically complex T1b renal tumors with a RENAL nephrometry score  ≥7, RPN had an advantage over LPN in reducing OT, WIT, and postoperative hospital stay length without increasing the risk of complications and weakening the oncological control, while the two surgical methods were similar in renal functional preservation.

Conclusions This analysis suggests that up to two thirds of deaths are potentially preventable. The transplant community should consider additional safety strategies such as simulation training of rare complications to lower donor risk.

This study was conducted in 60 donors from January 2016 to December 2017. We performed a retrospective review of consecutive patients who underwent transperitoneal right LLDN at our unit.ResultsLLDRN was successfully performed in all subjects by the same surgeons. There were 48 males and 12 females. Among 60 cases, 47 donors had single renal artery and vein, 2 cases had 1 artery and 2 veins, and 5 donors had 2 arteries and 1 vein, and the rest had 2–3 arteries with 1–3 veins. Operative time (OT) was 142.60 ± 33.73 min. Warm ischemic time (WIT) was 2.64 ± 0.76 min. The...

BodkinAbstract:Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare condition with left-right mirror imaging of both abdominal and thoracic organs. While this configuration is rarely of medical importance, an understanding of this unique anatomy is essential in the setting of surgical intervention. Here we review a case of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the setting of SIT. The patient underwent a hand-assisted laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Pathology revealed pT3aNxM...
