Laparoscopic Donor Nephrectomy - The MPUH experience

Laparoscopic live donor [LDN] nephrectomy has the advantages of reduced pain and shorter recuperation for the donor without compromising the out come in the recipient. Gill et.al. demonstrated the feasibility of performing LDN in porcine model and thereafter Ratner et.al. reported the first successful human laparoscopic LDN . We started doing LDN at out institute in November 2002.
50 donors were subjected to left nephrectomy and standard transperitoneal laproscopic technique was followed with 3 ports in 7 and 4 in 43 patients.
