The navel: A single, safe surgical access route for kidney extraction
Date:3/12/2009

Successful surgery that leaves no scars has become the main objective of the most daring and innovative surgeons. Since conventional open surgery gave way to laparoscopy-assisted surgery, which requires 3, 4 or even 5 incisions, surgeons operating on the pelvic and abdominal cavity, together with experts in robotics, are investigating new ways of entering the body to explore structures, diagnose diseases and extract organs. Hospital Clnic, Barcelona is committed to minimally invasive surgery, particularly as the navel has now been shown to be a safe and effective single access route for extracting kidneys.

Today is World Kidney Day, an initiative promoted by the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the National Kidney Foundation, which is focussing its message this year on early detection of chronic kidney cancer and arterial hypertension, one of the most important factors in developing this cancer. In this context, Hospital Clnic, Barcelona presents this innovative technique, which was made possible by the joint work of the medical team of Dr. Antoni Alcaraz, head of the urology department, Dr. Mara Jos Ribal, urology specialist, Dr. Llus Peri, urology specialist and Dr. Alejandro Molina, urology resident. Also taking part in the operation were Dr. Concepcin Monsalve, anesthesiologist, and Ms Merc Clapera, operating theatre nurse. This is the same team that, a little less than a year ago, carried out the world's first transvaginal nephrectomy due to kidney cancer also a minimally invasive technique; this technique made it possible to extract a tumorous kidney using only 2 small 1-cm incisions in the abdomen and another incision that cannot be
