Radical Robotic Cystectomy With Intracorporeal Urinary Diversion - Part 1
6 years ago
In the following material we can present a robot-assisted radical cystectomy with lymph node dissection and intracorporeal urinary diversion - part 1. Radical cystectomy is the gold-standard treatment for muscle-invasive and refractory nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer. In the majority of cases, the most popular choice of diversion is either an ileal conduit or an orthotopic neobladder. The potential advantages of intracorporeal urinary diversions include tension–free urethro–ileal anastomosis, smaller skin incision for delivery of specimen and, decreased bowel manipulation and exposure to external environment. All these factors can ultimately contribute the better outcomes in terms of better perioperative outcomes and lower risk of postoperative complications.
