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.
