Intestinal pseudo-obstruction nephrectomy

Ajay K Sharma, Scott Meier, Louis Larmeu, Sander Florman, Douglas P Slakey
BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy is associated with a higher incidence of ureteral complications. Hand-assisted dissection minimizes the use of instruments for intraoperative retraction and handling of periureteric tissue, and may reduce posttransplant complications. OBJECTIVE: To assess the outcome of hand-assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, in particular ureteral complications. METHODS: Records of 143 kidney transplant recipients who received allografts removed using the hand-assisted laparoscopic technique were retrospectively studied...

The presence of a subphrenic abscess can be established by its soft tissue mass effect especially when it contains gas. In the five patients presented here, gas-containing subphrenic abscesses were mimicked by air in loops of ileum; partially loculated air due to subphrenic adhesions in the post-laparotomy patient; layering of denser barium below with gastric content above in a patient with gastric outlet obstruction; and gas in the renal bed after nephrectomy.

Because of the variety of situations encountered in surgery of the kidney and ureter, the methods of approach to these organs need to be diversified. In this context, the authors discuss the place of the anterior and transperitoneal approach, based on a series of 573 cases. Its principal indications are: excision of large kidney tumours or pseudo-tumours, conservative treatment of hydronephrosis, removal of pelvic calculi, staged operations or operations on bilateral lesions, re-operations resulting in secondary nephrectomy or repair of the collecting system...
