To overcome the technical difficulties of a third renal transplantation, we developed a refined technique. After native ureteral stenting, the subhepatic retroperitoneum was approached by way of a midline incision. The renal vein was sewn to the vena cava, the artery to the common iliac artery, and the ureter to the native stented ureter.
