Abstract

Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy is emerging as the treatment of choice for localized renal malignancies in adults. Despite the widespread use of laparoscopic nephrectomy for benign renal disease in infants and children, the laparoscopic approach has not been employed for pediatric Wilms' tumor except following systemic chemotherapy. We report the results of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for removal of unilateral Wilms' tumor prior to the administration of systemic chemotherapy in two patients.
