Background: We evaluated the importance and efficacy of «SQ»stepped procedure«SQ» in laparoscopic cyst decortication as an initial experience in it. Materials and Methods: A 36 renal cyst cases were included. The stepped retroperitonoscopic cyst excision divided into three groups. First step, doing the incisions to place the ports and expanding the retroperitoneal space with balloon distension, second step, placement of trocars and reach to the cyst, third step, aspiration and decortication of the cyst. The difficulty of the sessions was measured with the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) scoring system. Score was determined according to the difficulty of the surgical step ranging from «SQ»0«SQ» to «SQ»10«SQ», «SQ»0«SQ», too easy, «SQ»10«SQ» too difficult«SQ». The durations were measured. One-way ANOVA test was used for statistical analysis. Results: The mean age was 52.0 (20-75) years. The mean operation time was 52.0 min. The mean duration of the first step was 12.5, second, 26.0 and third, 22.5 min. The mean VAS of first step, 3.2, second, 6.0 and third, 3.6 There were only significant differences in duration time and VAS score for second step among the surgeons (P<0.05). Conclusions: Laparoscopic cyst decortication may provide gaining experience to approach the kidney laparoscopically. The side, size and localization of cysts were not found associated with the difficulty of the method.
