GAMARRA QUINTANILLA, Mikel et al. New position for laparoscopic pyelplastic: Our experience. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.5, pp.565-568. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: To share our experience performing laparoscopic pyeloplasty and our contributions to this surgery. Methods: Between March 2004 and January 2006 we have performed 12 laparoscopic pyeloplasties in 12 patients. We modified our technique as we found difficulties during operations. By the only modification of patient position we have achieved a significant improve in our technique. Results: We describe how we performed the operation in the first cases and how we do it today, with the new position. We also describe the advantages observed. Conclusions: With our technique we achieve an important surgical time reduction, improvements in safety and reduction of surgical complications.

Keywords : Upper urinary tract; Ureteropyelic obstruction; Pyeloplasty.
