Retroperitoneal RARPN or Tips and tricks in Ureteroscopy
Watch as Dr. Alexander Kutikov and his colleagues perform Robot-Assisted Retroperitoneoscopic Partial Nephrectomy (RARPN) on a morbidly obese, male patient with a 3 cm left upper pole renal mass. Dr. Kutikov will walk you through the nuances of the set-up and each surgical step.
RARPN is an extremely useful tool in a kidney surgeon’s armamentarium. This technique allows the surgeon to avoid peritoneal dissection in patients with significant intraperitoneal pathology and/or scarring.
In patients with posterior renal masses, RARPN enables direct access to the tumour thus, making excessive perirenal dissection and aggressive medial rotation of the kidney unnecessary.
Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate
Since its introduction by Peter Gilling in 1998, Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) has become an attractive alternative to standard TURP.
Although multiple approaches with HoLEP are uitilized, all rely upon identification of the surgical capsule and retrograde enucleation along this plane.
The following video sequence shows e.g. Peter Schatteman – together with his colleagues De Groote, De Naeyer and Mottrie, who present the OLV modified technique from their OLV clinic, Aalst Belgium.
