Laparoscopic Urology
Laparoscopic Pyelolithotomy is done through the retro peritoneal approach without entering the abdominal cavity .It has a role in solitary renal pelvic stones where it scores over the per-cutaneous approach by not going through the kidney tissue.
Non-functioning kidneys need to be removed because they stand a great chance of developing complications due to infections and tumour formations .Non-functional kidney can also be a cause of hypertension because of vascular compromise .Laparoscopy is a well accepted and better option for the removal of such diseased kidney .Radical Nephrectomy in cases of tumours of kidney origin is also a fairly routine procedure.
Some centers are also doing laparoscopic donor Nephrectomy in kidney transplant cases.
Transperitoneal and retroperitoneal Ureterolithotomy has its role in large stones of the ureter which are difficult to remove by ureterorenoscopy (URS).
Laparoscopic trans-abdominal pyeloplasty (Classical Anderson Hynes or Y-V Plasty) is a routine laparoscopic procedure with comparable results as with open surgery.
