Complications Related to Renal Mobilization

Finally, complications may occur during mobilization of the kidney. During mobilization, there exists the potential to damage structures around the kidney. The risk, however, is small (8). Such structures include the colon, the duodenum, the pancreas, the small bowel, the major vascular structures, the spleen, and the liver.

Injury to surrounding structures is avoided by maintaining surgical orientation, recognition of retroperitoneal landmarks, and meticulous dissection.
