PURPOSE: The use of minilaparoscopic instruments has gained interest in recent years, permitting a less invasive treatment for many surgical procedures. Its application in urological surgeries has not been established yet. METHODS: Between November 2012 and December 2014, 32 patients underwent minilaparoscopic surgeries, using 3.5-mm instruments. The procedures performed included pyeloplasties (16 cases), radical nephrectomies (2), simple nephrectomies (4), renal cyst decortication (5), ureterolithotomy (2) ureteral reimplantation (2) and partial ureterectomy (1)...

We present our first minilaparoscopic-assisted laparoendoscopic single-site bilateral nephrectomies (b-LESS-N) performed in a patient with bilateral atrophic kidney, right malignant renal tumor of 4.5 cm that developed in a native kidney after multiple bilateral renal transplantations and renovascular hypertension. The mean operative time was 233 minutes, with a mean blood loss of 180 mL. A single umbilical incision (5.5 cm) was performed to remove both kidneys. No significant difference in glomerular filtration rate was observed postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To present the safety and surgical outcomes of the initial series of mini-laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy and graft outcomes in related recipients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2012 through July 2012, fifty patients underwent minilaparoscopic live donor nephrectomy. Two 3.5 mm trocars were inserted above and lateral to the umbilicus for grasping and scissoring. One 5 mm trocar with a camera was inserted in the umbilicus and an 11 mm trocar was inserted through fascia from a 6-8 cm Pfannenstiel incision for bipolar coagulation, kidney extraction, and vascular clip applier...

The feasibility of a transvaginal hybrid natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) nephrectomy has already been demonstrated using standard laparoscopic ports through the abdominal wall. We evaluated the feasibility of a transvaginal NOTES-assisted minilaparoscopic nephrectomy (mLN). The patient is positioned in a semilumbotomy position with legs separated to allow for vaginal access. A 3.5-mm port is placed at the umbilicus for a 30° laparoscope; two 3.5-mm ports are placed in the flank in the same location as for a standard transperitoneal nephrectomy; and a 12-mm port is placed through the vagina, perforating the vaginal wall...

OBJECTIVES: Development of small animal models for laparoscopic surgery is important for basic pathophysiologic and oncologic studies, instrument development, and surgical training. Although transperitoneal laparoscopy has been described in the rat, the technical feasibility of the retroperitoneoscopic approach for major renal surgery has not been reported previously. Herein, we describe the development of a rat model for retroperitoneal minilaparoscopic nephrectomy. METHODS: Sixteen male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent a three-port bilateral retroperitoneoscopic nephrectomy using 2 and 3-mm instruments and optics exclusively...
