Objective. The object of this study was to better define the relevant anatomy and innervation of the anterolateral abdominal wall musculature seeking to avoid abdominal wall complication after open donor nephrectomy. We dissected four cadavers and retrospectively assessed donor ultrasonographic imaging of anterolateral abdominal muscle atrophy after donor nephrectomy with a lumbotomy incision.
