Minimal scar techniques in living donors for kidney transplant
Date:8/4/2011

Transplant Organization (OCATT) notes that "the Hospital Clnic and its surgical transplant team turn Catalonia again into a model for the rest the world, making a brilliant and pioneer step forward in surgical techniques that will minimize the physical injury due to a living donor renal extraction and make the recovery process easier".

Since then, Dr. Alcaraz and his team have performed amny kidney withdrawals through the vagina, a pathway that is presented today as a 100% safe and effective alternative for living donor transplants.

Only two or three years ago, Hospital Clnic of Barcelona's Urologists used laparoscopy assisted nephrectomy as the reference technique for the surgical treatment of these pathologies.
