Abstract

Here we report a patient with symptomatic mobile kidney (nephroptosis) who was treated successfully with transperitoneal laparoscopic nephropexy with the use of nonabsorbable polymer clips. In this procedure, clips were used on Gerota's fascia to fix the kidney to the transversus abdominis fascia and the triangular ligament. This method is easier and requires less time than previously reported techniques.
