Background and purpose: Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy is an appropriate alternative for open donor nephrectomy in kidney transplant. The latter has been applied in most health centers for 50 years and it has been proven that unilateral nephrechtomy (laparotomy) is safe for the doner and so the remaining kidney can handle its function well. Since the former method for the kidney doner has been recently used as well, it seems necessary to compare the long-term function of the transplanted kidney in the two methods. Materials and methods: In this description study, the function of transplanted 133 kidneys including 75 cases of laparatomic donor nephrectomy and 58 cases of laparascopic were evaluated a with creatinin one years Post transplantion. Results: After one year of transplantation, no significant differences were observed in the creatinine level of the two groups. This research showed that the nephrectomy method, either laparoscopy or laparotomy, has no influence on the kidney function after one year. Conclusion: Laparoscopic nephrectomy is recommended because it has few side effects for the kidney donor and it can be used in clinical settings.
