Abstract

With improvement in immunosuppression and surgical techniques, more women are undergoing renal transplantation for management of end-stage renal disease. Location of the transplanted pelvic kidney and transplanted ureter must be taken into consideration when performing pelvic surgery. Two cases in which laparoscopic hysterectomy was successfully performed in patients who had previously undergone renal transplantation are reported.
