Özet

Objective: The use of laparoscopic scissors or blades in laparoscopic nondismembered pyeloplasty is quite common; however, the incision made using these tools may cause difficulties for the surgeon. We developed an efficient, safe, reusable, and inexpensive instrument to incise the pelvis and ureter during laparoscopic pyeloplasty. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the new laparoscopic instrument designed for pelvic and ureteric incisions.
