Calyceal diverticulum management has been performed using various modalities including ureteroscopy, percutaneous treatment, and laparoscopy. We present our experience with laparoscopic management of calyceal diverticulum in two patients with large calyceal diverticulum and history of failed open surgery because of incorrect diagnosis of simple renal cyst .Both patients had an uneventful intra- and postoperative course. On follow up, both of them were symptom free without any evidence of diverticulum in imaging. We reviewed the literature and found that laparoscopic management of calyceal diverticulum has been reported in 37 adult patients other than our cases . We performed a pooling analysis and discussed different aspect of the approach.
