Abstract

A modified thoracoabdominal approach for radical retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy is described. In addition, this same incision is ideal for surgical access to the retroperitoneal structures. The primary advantage of this approach is full exposure of the retroperitoneum with minimal retraction by assistants and without entering the chest cavity.
