Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy for upper urinary-tract transitional-cell carcinoma



Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy for upper urinary-tract transitional-cell carcinoma



Journal of Endourology 18(4): 351-358



Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy with laparoscopic, cystoscopic, or open management of the distal ureter and bladder cuff allow anyone from the novice to the advanced laparoscopic surgeon to perform en-bloc resection of the kidney, ureter, and bladder cuff without compromising oncologic principles. Patients receive significant benefits in the form of less pain, shorter hospital stay, and rapid convalescence. As more urologic surgeons develop skills with this procedure, a more critical analysis of early and long-term results will be possible. As operative times decrease, hand-assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy may become the procedure of choice for upper-tract transitional-cell carcinoma. The techniques and early results are described.
