Laparoendoscopic single-site live donor nephrectomy (LESS-LDN) using a GelPort® device as the access platform is feasible and safe, and offers exit strategies for easy conversion in case of difficulty. The technique is attractive for surgeons who have performed standard or hand-assisted laparoscopic LDN and would like to advance to the next level.
Although performing robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy in patients with previous abdominal surgery can be challenging, with sound surgical techniques the procedure can provide surgical outcomes comparable to those of patients with negative surgical history.
