AUTOTRANSPLANTATION

REFERENCES

To date, three different types of laparoscopic renovascular surgical procedures have been reported in the literature. These include laparoscopic aortorenal bypass, laparoscopic renal autotransplantation, and laparoscopic repair of renal artery aneurysm.

Surgical revascularization remains the gold-standard definitive treatment of renal artery stenosis as well as the salvage treatment of failed endovascular intervention. However, the conventional open revascularization surgery is typically associated with significant patient morbidity and recovery. Laparoscopy was thought to have the potential to reduce the postrevascularization patient morbidity.
