Abstract

Minimally invasive procedures are gaining in popularity for application in reconstructive surgeries of the kidney in children. The use of robotic assistance for these laparoscopic procedures is an emerging option. Here, we describe our straight-arm positioning technique, which serves as a simple and effective alternative to classic flank positioning in pediatric renal cases, and the associated port placement strategies for these robotic-assisted laparoscopic reconstructive renal procedures.
