Contemporary Preoperative and Intraoperative Management of the Radical Cystectomy Patient.

Radical cystectomy is a morbid procedure performed on an aging and often frail population. Nonetheless, advances in preoperative and intraoperative management have significantly improved patient outcomes. Preoperative optimization includes a focus on patient education, risk factor reduction, risk stratification, nutritional optimization, and bowel motility enhancement. Intraoperative optimization focuses on maintaining normothermia, restrictive fluid administration, minimization of blood transfusions, and nonopioid pain management.
