  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Vascular injury during laparoscopic adrenal and renal surgery were reviewed. Its prevention and treatment were described. The incidence of vascular injury was 2% in laparoscopic adrenalectomy and 3 to 6% in laparoscopic nephrectomy and radical nephrectomy. One half of these injuries were treated laparoscopically and the other were treated with open procedures. Vascular injury during laparoscopic surgery is the most amenable complication, which often requires conversion to open surgery. In adrenal and renal surgery, the great vessels such as the renal artery and vein, vena cava and aorta are involved.
