BACKGROUND Recent small case series have now been reported for robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomy. The majority of these series have reported techniques and outcomes in a predominantly male patient population. The application of such novel techniques to female cystectomy and anterior exenterative procedures has not been well documented and described. In this paper, we report our initial experience with robotic anterior pelvic exenteration in the female with bladder cancer… CONTINUE READING
