Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To report our early experience with laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) nephrectomy using home-made single-port device for benign nonfunctioning kidney. METHODS: A total of 14 patients with benign nonfunctioning kidney underwent transperitoneal LESS nephrectomy by 2 experienced laparoscopic surgeons. The indications for nephrectomy were nonfunctioning kidney associated with ectopic kidney (n = 2), ureteropelvic junction obstruction (n = 5), genitourinary tuberculosis (n = 4), ureter stone (n = 2), and ureter stricture (n = 1). RESULTS: All procedures were completed successfully. The mean operative time was 151 (85-230) minutes, estimated blood loss 108 (negligible-500) mL, and postoperative hospital stay 3.1 (2-6) days. There were no major complications. CONCLUSIONS: LESS nephrectomy is a feasible and safe surgical option for benign nonfunctioning kidney.
