Hospital Clínic conducts the first kidney extraction through the vagina in Europe
Date:3/31/2008

This is the first time this intervention has been conducted in Europe, and the second in the world. Thanks to the work of the expert group of Hospital Clnic de Barcelona, the extirpation of a kidney ‒affected by a malignant tumour‒ through the vagina has been achieved.
