[Retroperitoneoscopic surgeries for pyoinflammatory diseases of the kidney with varying severity of endotoxemia].

[Article in Russian]


The medical histories of 98 patients with pyoinflammatory diseases of the kidney, who underwent surgery by retroperitoneoscopic access, and 75 patients, who underwent traditional open surgery were analyzed. The degrees of multiple organ dysfunction and endotoxemia were determined in all patients. The groups were comparable in terms of clinical manifestations and severity of intoxication. The advantages of minimally invasive retroperitoneoscopic interventions are demonstrated; they allow to reduce the surgical morbidity, pain after surgery, the frequency and severity of intraoperative complications, length of in-hospital stay, the period of disability, the cost of treatment, and the need for medications.
