Improved technique of laparoscopic nephrectomy for multicystic dysplastic kidney.


:We report removal of a multicystic dysplastic kidney with a laparoscopic technique that uses only three trocar sites. Additionally, we have found placement of a ureteral catheter and full mechanical and antibacterial bowel cleansing unnecessary. The role of this surgery in the management of multicystic dysplastic kidney is discussed.
