Complications of Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection is an integral part of the management of testicular cancer. Surgical approach and outcomes have improved over the past decades. Several factors influence the complexity of the operation, including numerous patient characteristics and disease-related characteristics. An important consideration lies in the fact that this is largely a vascular operation, and techniques of vascular control should be comfortable for the urologic surgeon performing the procedure. This article discusses the known surgical complications related to this operation and their relative incidence reported throughout the literature.
