To evaluate the long-term outcomes of laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation with extracorporeal tailoring and direct nipple ureteroneocystostomy for adult obstructive megaureter and compare the results with the open procedure.
BACKGROUND - Robot-assisted laparoscopic extravesical ureteral reimplantation (RALUR-EV) is being adopted at large pediatric urology centers in the United States, but currently there is not consensus on surgical technique to facilitate the best possible outcomes.
To describe the step-by-step techniques for robotic ureteral reimplantation performed by using the Vinci SP® surgical system (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA). Different case-scenarios were included with an educational purpose.
Pelvic exenteration (PE) for locally advanced pelvic malignancy requires a multi-disciplinary approach and is associated with significant morbidity. Urinary reconstruction forms a major component of this procedure.
