The exact indications and ideal candidates for laparoscopic nephrectomy are yet to be identified. Occasionally, urologists might drain the renal fossa, depending on the pathogenesis of the renal disease prompting the nephrectomy, as with chronic infection. The authors describe a technique of placing a closed drainage system under full view with insufflation after laparoscopic nephrectomy. No additional stab wounds are necessary.
