Abstract

Renal grafts from living donors represent an important source of organs, particularly for young patients with chronic renal failure. Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy is a relatively new technique, which has the potential to increase the pool of available kidney grafts by removing some disincentives to live donation. The technique used for left kidney donation at our center, the first to introduce laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy in Italy, is described in this report. To further reduce warm ischemia time, the kidney is preloaded inside the extraction bag and 2 staplers are used to transect the renal artery and vein. The spread of the new technique in our country and in the rest of Europe is likely to raise the issue of training in laparoscopic surgery for transplant surgeons.
