Ten male domestic pigs were subjected to laparoscopic nephroureterectomy. The procedure entailed only minimal loss of blood. The renal pedicle was resected using Endo-GIA equipment. A bladder cuff was obtained using an Endo-GIA stapler, which allowed the progressive reduction of the operating time from an initial 120 min to around 60min.
