Abstract

Pelvic kidneys pose a problem for any planned surgical intervention given their anomalous blood supply. Although minimally invasive approaches have been described for the management of benign conditions, only a handful of reports have described the use of laparoscopy for removal of ectopic or fused kidneys. We describe the laparoscopic removal of a symptomatic pelvic kidney in a patient before renal transplantation.
