A combined robotic approach to a synchronous upper rectal and prostate cancer - a video vignette.

In recent years, robotic surgery has gained popularity in colorectal and prostate surgery. Synchronous upper rectal cancer and prostate adenocarcinoma represent two of the most prevalent neoplasms. A combined robotic approach constitutes a technical challenge for surgeons and a few cases have been reported in the literature so far. The simultaneous robotic resection of both neoplasms minimizes potential complications compared to the two procedures performed separately and adds the benefits of the robotic surgery.
