Abstract

Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy is an alternative to laparoscopic nephrectomy. We describe our method for triangular port placement and patient positioning during bilateral hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy. This method does not require intraoperative patient repositioning and may decrease the overall operative time while enhancing patient safety.
