Laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter placement: step by step approach
This is the case of an 87-year-old man with a history of chronic kidney disease stage 5 proposed for dialysis.
The patient had a medical history of diabetes mellitus type 2 over 10 years, hypertension, anemia treated with erythropoietin. The patient was a former smoker.
After explaining to the patient and his family the option between hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, the patient opted for the peritoneal one.
He was admitted electively and submitted to 3D laparoscopic peritoneal dialysis catheter placement. The surgery and post-operative period were uneventful. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 2.

Simultaneous robotic right partial nephrectomy and right adrenalectomy
Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy has become a safe procedure if standardized surgical steps are followed [1]. The same goes for robot-assisted adrenalectomy, with the robot offering the possibility to manage complex cases that are considered technically challenging for traditional laparoscopy [2].
A combined laparoscopic partial nephrectomy and an ipsilateral adrenalectomy have been described for upper pole renal tumors contiguously involving the adrenal gland [3].
In this video, we describe the surgical steps for a simultaneous robotic right partial nephrectomy and right adrenalectomy for two distinct renal and adrenal tumors.

Laparoscopic right nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma
This video demonstrates a laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for renal cell cancer. The surgeon starts his dissection superiorly medially. After identifying the vena cava the renal vein is identified but not clipped. The renal artery is next identified behind the vein and clipped and then the renal vein is transected using a linear stapler. The additional lumbar vessels are then taken down to free the medial aspect of the kidney. The adrenal pedicles are then divided and the kidney and the adrenal gland are mobilized en masse from the psoas and completely freed. Minimal mobilization of the duodenum and hepatic flexure of the colon is required.
The specimen is put into a bag and retrieved through an enlarged trocar incision.
