Diagnostic laparoscopy for undescended testis, nephrectomy, heminephrectomy, varicocelectomy, pyeloplasty, and ureteral reimplantation are some of the indications which are commonly being performed.

In this webinar, the basic principles of laparoscopy in children as well as the basic laparoscopy skills will be discussed with the experts in the field. The webinar is organized by the EAU Working Group on Paediatric Urology (EWPU).
