|Study Start Date:||October 2006|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2009|
Procedure: donor nephrectomy
The objective of this protocol is to look at the outcomes of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy performed by using hand assisted (HA)or entirely laparoscopic (LDN) surgical techniques. To define the advantages of each technique, we will use records of patients who underwent laparoscopic live kidney donation with HALDN.
