Abstract

The endoscopic retroperitoneal (retroperitoneoscopic) approach to extirpative intervention for benign renal disease is increasingly popular. We describe several modifications of this approach, including the use of prone positioning and 2-mm instruments, that may improve the safety and efficacy of the technique in children. These modifications provide unobstructed views of the kidney and renal hilum and facilitate dissection in a small working space.
