Abstract

We report a case of an elective laparoscopic transperitoneal removal of a large renal cyst by dividing the colonic mesentery without mobilizing the colon to gain access to the kidney. This appears to be a safe and potentially less costly approach compared to the standard flank approach of these simple renal cysts.
