Laparoscopic techniques have expanded the possibilities of endo-surgically approaching urological abnormalities that would otherwise be managed via an open operation. We report on another useful application of the laparoscope, bladder diverticulectomy. A large bladder diverticulum, responsible for incomplete bladder emptying and recurrent urinary tract infections in an 87-year-old man, was successfully excised endoscopically. The technique and possible future indications are described.
