Abstract

Laparoscopic nephrectomy has assumed a central role in the management of kidney diseases. Laparoscopy, inspite of its less morbidity than open surgery, still requires several incisions. These incisions carry risks of bleeding, ventral hernia, damage to internal organs and decreased cosmesis.

An alternative to laparoscopy is the single access or keyhole surgery. This keyhole surgery utilizes the new laparoscopy access port (R-Port), single port access (SPA) procedure, one port umbilical surgery (OPUS), the “belly button” entry, natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery, and the magnetic anchoring and guidance system (MAGS) technology.
