Abstract

Retroperitoneoscopy enables quick, simple, and direct access to the retroperitoneal cavity. We describe our operative technique and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of retroperitoneoscopy. We report on our experience with this operative technique after 360 procedures: nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, living donor nephrectomy, cryotherapy of renal tumors, pyeloplasty, adrenalectomy, and further operations. In addition, we discuss indications that are suitable for beginners to retroperitoneoscopy and some topics that require special attention.
