A modified technique for entrapment of the kidney using a sterilized zipper plastic bag was used. The upper lip of the zipper bag is sutured to the abdominal wall. A port is inserted through the extraction incision site (Pfannenstiel incision). A fan retractor is inserted through the port which scooped and delivered the specimen into the bag. Here, an alternative laparoscopic technique that involves inexpensive and readily available materials is described.

Key words: transperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy
