Abstract

Laparoscopy offers a safe and efficacious means of ablating symptomatic simple renal cysts while conferring the usual benefits of shorter hospital stay, quicker convalescence, and reduced postoperative pain, although no direct comparison with open surgery has been performed. For indeterminate, complex renal cysts, laparoscopic exploration may spare the patient a morbid open operation to assess a cystic lesion of indeterminant risk. Although laparoscopic removal of kidneys with ADPKD remains a technically challenging exercise, centers of laparoscopic expertise have demonstrated the safety and feasibility of the procedure, thereby expanding the benefits of laparoscopic surgery to patients traditionally relegated to open surgical management.
