The aim of the stucdy was to present technical aspects and possible intraoperative complications based on the first single port surgery (SPS) laparoscopic nephrectomy performed in our center. The SPS laparoscopic nephrectomy of the right kidney was performed using a transperitoneal access in a 4-year-old child due to a small nonfunctional kidney complicated by hypertension. The intraoperative course was complicated by rupture of the gall bladder wall after grasper removal without leakage of its contents into the peritoneal cavity. No postoperative complications occurred. The SPS nephrectomy appears to be an advantageous method in children which offers a good cosmetic effect. Other benefits require confirmation in further studies. Fixation of the gall bladder is a very helpful but risky maneuver.
