  • BACKGROUND Laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) in metastatic testicular cancer is a technically challenging procedure.1 In right-modified RPLND, retrocaval lymph nodes are often not visible and cannot be adequately dissected using only the transperitoneal approach. In laparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) for horseshoe kidney, the kidney cannot be sufficiently moved due to its connection to the contralateral kidney, and the isthmus and lower poles have separate blood supplies… CONTINUE READING
