Abstract

In clinical situations where more than one procedure is required, a properly positioned hand-assist device can be used to obviate the need for two large incisions. We present four cases of hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy combined with a simultaneous second organ extraction. Each of the four primary procedures, as well as one of the four secondary procedures, was performed using a hand-assisted laparoscopic technique. In two cases, the secondary procedure was performed with an open surgical technique through the hand-assist incision. For the remaining secondary procedure, we used a laparoscopically assisted technique.
