Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Control of bleeding from the renal parenchyma remains one of the challenges of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. If adjuvant measures fail, packing of the surgical bed may achieve hemostasis. We report a novel series of temporary laparoscopic packing of the surgical bed with minimally invasive kidney surgery. Technique and potential complications are also discussed.
