Despite its advantages, laparoscopic donor nephrectomy is associated with prolonged operation time, which could potentially increase oxidative stress in the graft. We performed the first experimental, randomized, controlled study with blind assessment of outcome to address this possibility. Wistar–Albino rats were randomized into three groups. The animals in the control group were subjected to a sham operation under anesthesia; the animals in the other two groups were subjected to CO2… CONTINUE READING
