LAZARUS, John. Exciting times: Towards a totally minimally invasive paediatric urology service. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2011, vol.49, n.1, pp.8-12. ISSN 2078-5151.
Following on from the first paediatric laparoscopic nephrectomy in 1992, the growth of minimally invasive ablative and reconstructive procedures in paediatric urology has been dramatic. This article reviews the literature related to laparoscopic dismembered pyeloplasty, optimising posterior urethral valve ablation and intravesical laparoscopic ureteric reimplantation.
