laparoscopy retroperitoneoscopy urology


Objective. The aim of this paper is retrospective cvaluation of the results
and complications after videoscopic operations in patients with urological
Materials and methods. The analyses have been performed in 255 patients
in age range from 4 to 71 years. There were 232 transperitoneal and 23
retroperitoneal operations among them.
Results. The good surgical results were observed in 95.7% patients.
Complications were noted in 17 (6.7%) and postoperative mortality in 0%.
Conversion to the open operations was performed in 4 (1.6%) patients.
Average time of the both types of the operations was 63 min (24-185), and
mean hospitalization time was 3.0 days (2-16). The follow-up was performed
in mean 16.5 months (3-33) after these operations.
Conclusions. Videoscopie operations are less invasive, cause less serious
complications, short hospitalization time and recovcry to active professional
life if compared with clinical open surgeries.
