Resumen

VALERO FUENTEALBA, Gonzalo. Retroperitoneal laparoscopic node dissection for non testicular pathology. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.5, pp.383-386. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: The wide use of imaging tests has increased the number of patients with abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes that should be studied with biopsy. The laparoscopic approach has been used to identify lymph nodes of gynecologic origin and lymphomas among others. We present a series of four patients submitted to laparoscopic resection for non-testicular pathology. Methods: From July 2008 until May 2009, four patients have undergone laparoscopic resection, using the same technique and dissection pattern of testicular carcinoma. Results: All surgeries were completed by laparoscopic approach. All patients achieved a resected lymph node suitable for pathologic diagnosis. Mean operative time was 95 min (40-135). The average estimate bleeding was 60cc {0-80). There were no perioperative complications. Conclusions: In patients with abdominal lymph nodes not from testicular origin it is possible to perform laparoscopic resection with low morbidity and excellent effectiveness.
