Vestnik Khirurgii Imeni I.I.Grekova
A new method of nephropexy with an autograft by the upper pole to the diaphragm from intercostal lumbotomy is described. The method induces little injury, is technically simple and can be employed in those patients who do not need a revision or surgery on the renal pelvis, ureter or vascular pedicle. The method was used in operations on 45 patients. Good immediate and remote results were obtained.
