CASTILLO C, OCTAVIO A et al. Operative morbidity in laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node disection in clinical stage A non-seminomatous testis cancer. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.6, pp.533-537. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262009000600007.

Background: Retroperitoneal Lymph node dissection is part of the treatment of patients with nonseminomatous germ cell tumors stage I (NSGCT). Aim: To report the immediate surgical outcomes of patients subjected to laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. Material and Methods: Prospective analysis of the surgical outcomes of 118 patients aged 15 to 44 years, who underwent Laparoscopic Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (L-RPLND) for NSGCT stage I. Results: Median blood loss was 50 cc (range 10-1.000 cc), median operative time was 120 min. (range 60-300 min). Mean hospital stay was 41.4 hours. Twelve patients (10.2%) had operative complications. Ten had vascular injuries (8.5%), one had a duodenal injury (0.85%) and one had an acute pulmonary edema (0.85%). Eight lesions were repaired laparoscopically and three required conversion to open surgery. There was no mortality in this series. Conclusions: L-RPLND had an acceptable complication rate in this series of patients. Most of the complications could be resolved laparoscopically.
