Brief Summary:
This study is designed to look at outcomes of patients who have undergone hand assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy versus totally laparoscopic donor nephrectomy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Living Renal Donor Procedure: donor nephrectomy

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Renal Donor Comparison of Outcomes: Hand Assist Versus Laparoscopic Nephrectomy
Study Start Date : October 2006
Primary Completion Date : August 2008
Study Completion Date : August 2008

Intervention Details:
    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.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of postoperative comfort and hospital stay satisfaction with HALDN [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
  2. Prevalence of postoperative comfort and hospital stay satisfaction with LDN [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
