Is transperitoneal laparoscopic radical nephrectomy suitable for patients with a history of abdominal surgery?

Asian J Endosc Surg 2019 Oct 2;12(4):429-433. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Urology, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is the gold standard for treatment of renal cell carcinoma. However, previous abdominal surgery is generally regarded as a contraindication to the laparoscopic approach because it causes intraperitoneal adhesions, which are thought to interfere with subsequent laparoscopic procedures inside the abdominal cavity. Few studies have examined the influence of prior surgery on laparoscopic nephrectomy. Read More
