Open donor nephrectomy has been a viable and safe option for more than 30 years but carries the morbidity of the relatively huge open incision and a long convalescence period. Insufficient living donor continues to be the main cause of ever-increasing waiting list of renal transplantation recipients. Ratner in 1995 carried out the very first laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy, extracting the kidney via a 9-inch midline incision. Inside the next 11 years, LDN became the gold standard. The success of the operation has influenced favorably to helping the willingness to donate and thus helping the donor pool. Ratner reported a greater than 100% rise in live related renal transplants in their center because beginning the laparoscopic donor nephrectomy.
