ABSTRACT
Transumbilical single-port laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (SPLDN) is a novel, rapidly evolving, minimally invasive treatment modality for kidney transplantation. This method causes minimal parietal injury, has cosmetic advantages, and allows rapid recovery because of low postoperative pain and short hospital stay. Like other abdominal surgeries, when conducted by experienced laparoscopic surgeons, it can meet the same graft requirements as conventional laparoscopic surgery. Here, we report the first two cases of transumbilical SPLDN at Daejeon St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea. We used the umbilicus as a common path for laparoscopic procedures and as a route for specimen retrieval. The operating times were 230 and 265 minutes in cases 1 and 2, respectively. No intra- or postoperative complications were noted. In case 1, the wound length was 4 cm and duration of hospitalization was 2 days. In case 2, the wound length was only 2.5 cm, and the duration of hospitalization was only 1 day.

Figure 2: Postoperative scar 1 week after single-port laparoscopic donor nephrectomy.

Mentions: The donor was a 42-year-old woman (BMI, 27.72 kg/m2; height, 163.3 cm; weight, 73.3 kg). She had no history of previous surgery or underlying disease. A left kidney graft measuring 11.0 × 8.0 × 4.5 cm (198 g) was obtained. The length of the renal artery was 2.5 cm, and that of the renal vein was 4.4 cm. The warm ischemic time was 1 minute 22 seconds, and the total ischemic time was 47 minutes. The operating time was 265 minutes, and no intra- or postoperative complications were noted. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 1. The length of the umbilicus wound measured when she visited the outpatient clinic was 2.0 cm, and the wound was not easily identifiable (Fig. 2).
