BACKGROUND After performing more than 500 robotic radical prostatectomy and robotic radical cystoprostatectomy in men, we attempted to develop the technique of robot-assisted radical cystectomy in women. This article describes two techniques of robot-assisted radical cystectomy for women, conventional and with preservation of the uterus and vagina. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case series of robot-assisted radical cystectomy and urinary diversion in women. STUDY DESIGN… CONTINUE READING
