Abdominal gas insufflation does not have an adverse effect on the renal function of the kidney donor 1 week after laparoscopic donor nephrectomy. No differences in renal function or histomorphology were detected between syngeneic kidney grafts exposed to pneumoperitoneum and gasless control subjects.
