Abstract

Background: A limited number of publications are available in the literature regarding laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy with vaginal extraction (LLDN-VE) for kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to compare long-term recipient outcomes of standard laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy (S-LLDN) and LLDN-VE.
