Aim: To evaluate safety of simultaneous Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and Retroperitoneoscopic live donor nephrectomy (RPLDN). Materials and Methods: We have retrospectively reviewed 400 patients who have undergone RPLDN. Ten patients underwent a combination of RPLDN and LC. Ten patients underwent a combination of RPLDN and LC. Results: Mean operative time was 141.1 ± 27.47 min (range 95-170 min), with a mean estimated blood loss (EBL) of 61.1 ± 18.33 mL (range 30-80 mL). No blood transfusions were required. No short- or long-term complications were found. Mean hospital stay was 2.6 ± 0.84 days (range 2-4 days). Mean follow-up period was 1.8 ± 0.71 years (range 1-3 years). Conclusion: From our results, we conclude that simultaneous RPLDN and LC are safe.
