Core Tip

Core tip: Duplex kidney is a common congenital malformation of the urinary system in chil-dren, and most symptomatic patients should opt for surgical management. However, there is still some controversy on the applications of the translaparoscopic approach and retrolaparoscopic approach. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both approaches in this case. These contents provide a basis for future research.
