Abstract

Retroperitoneoscopy is our preferred technique for renal surgery and is routinely performed for living donor nephrectomy. We report a case of a totally bisected left hemidiaphragm during left-sided retroperitoneoscopic donor nephrectomy. This was most likely caused when creating the retroperitoneal working space by balloon dilation. Because the cardiopulmonary situation of the patient remained stable, retroperitoneoscopic donor nephrectomy was performed with the standard technique. This report describes for the first time the retroperitoneoscopic reconstruction of a diaphragmatic injury.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
