Abstract

In 1993, Jordan and Winslow described laparoscopic upper pole partial nephrectomy in a 14-year-old girl with bilateral duplicated collecting systems [1]. Since that time, there has been a substantial amount of literature devoted to laparoscopic renal surgery in children. Prior to and including 2009, there have been 28 case series of retroperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy [2–29], 26 case series of transperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy [2, 11, 28, 30–52], and 3 case series of robotic-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy [53–55]. Regardless of the approach taken, the literature reveals that laparoscopic renal ablative surgery in children is safe and effective [56].
