Retroperitoneoscopic renal biopsy can be technically challenging in extremely obese patients because of loss of surgical landmarks and difficulty in identifying the kidney within retroperitoneal adipose tissue. We present our experience with retroperitoneoscopic renal biopsy in extremely obese patients and describe our surgical technique.
With the use of intraoperative ultrasonography and a systematic, anatomic approach, retro-peritoneoscopic renal biopsy can be successfully completed in extremely obese patients. This procedure can be reliably performed on an outpatient basis with minimal morbidity and should be considered a viable alternative to open renal biopsy.
