Lapatoscopic Nephrectomy


How you can peroform laparoscopic nephrectomy.Nephrectomy is the surgical removal of a kidney,The first successful nephrectomy was performed through the German surgeon Gustav Simon on August 2nd, 1869 in Heidelberg. Simon practiced the operation beforehand in animal experiments. He proved that certain healthy kidney could be sufficient for urine excretion in humans.

The word nephrectomy means elimination of a kidney. A kidney can be removed either utilizing an ‘open’ surgical approach or using ‘keyhole’ (laparoscopic) surgery. Open surgery to remove a kidney involves creating a large cut quietly with unavoidable problems for example pain, a a hospital stay of 7-10 days, along with a prolonged a day off. The more contemporary laparoscopic method of kidney removal uses three or four one centimetre cuts (incisions). A thin tube having a light and camera on the end of telescope known as laparoscope, and surgical instruments can then be passed through these incisions. The camera sends pictures to some TV screen so that the surgeon can easily see the kidney and surrounding tissue. One from the incisions will be enlarged make it possible for the kidney to feed once it's been disconnected from the surrounding tissues and arteries. A laparoscopic nephrectomy is performed under a general anaesthetic.

You will come across the Anaesthetist at the time of the operation and he or she will discuss the anaesthetic with you. You should expect to remain in hospital for 2-4 nights. The laparoscopic method of kidney removal has been shown to cause less blood loss and fewer complications than the open method, as well as includes a shorter recovery time. The open surgical method of kidney removal has become only used for complicated cases.

Laparoscopic Nephrectomy provides patients with a safe and effective way to remove a diseased or cancerous or benign disease of kidney. Laparosopic nephrectomy is a minimally invasive technique, which provides patients with less discomfort and equivalent results when compared to the larger incision required with traditional open surgery. When compared to conventional open surgery, laparoscopic nephrectomy has resulted in significantly less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, earlier return to work and daily activities, a more favorable cosmetic result and outcomes identical to that of open surgery

Laparoscopic nephrectomy surgery is becoming a routine procedure in the armamentarium of many laparoscopic urologists. There are many complications also possible with laparoscopic nephrectomy. Complications that are unique to laparoscopy exist as in any general surgery or gynecological laparoscopy but they should decrease with time with repetition and experience.

With the time surgeon will learn many different precautions and procedures that should help decrease the risk of future complications associated with laparoscopic nephectomy surgery.

Complications associated with the laparoscopic nephrectomy surgery vary among the different procedures and with surgeon experience. but overall rate of complication appears to be similar to that of open surgery.
