Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report on a case of robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery in a child with bilateral obstructing fibroepithelial polyps. A 9-year-old boy presented with a two-year history of intermittent flank and abdominal pain. Work-up revealed bilateral obstructive hydronephrosis. During surgery, he was noted to have large, obstructive polyps in the renal pelvis. The child underwent bilateral robot-assisted excision of the polyps and dismembered pyeloplasty in a staged fashion. We discuss fibroepithelial polyps and their management.
