Estimated Enrollment: 300
Study Start Date: October 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
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.
