PMID:  10071994     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: Laparoscopic surgery has gained popularity as a procedure for the removal of donated kidneys. Although the insufflation of gas necessary for this relatively simple approach poses a low risk of venous air embolism, it may increase the risk of changes in valvular competency.
