Abstract

We present our experience of using the bipolar electrocautery for division of the left renal vein branches in laparoscopic right living donor nephrectomy. This has been performed in 160 cases with no complications related to the technique. The absence of laparoscopic clips allows easier and safer placement of the endostaple.
