Abstract

Laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection has been used to stage germ cell testicular cancer. Since its initial description, this minimally invasive procedure has evolved into a therapeutic operation that adheres to established strict oncologic principles. A modified template dissection that fully duplicates the open technique is now routinely performed at our institution. We describe and show in the accompanying video segments a laparoscopic modified template dissection.
