Category: Robotic Surgery: Lower Tract - Benign
Introduction & Objective : Robotic Surgery is increasingly being used in the management of benign and malignant urologic conditions, and increasingly applicability to complex urologic operative diseases.
Methods : We present a 58 year old male with benign prostatic hypertrophy with lower urinary tract symptoms, a 700 mL post void residual, a 10 cm Bladder Diverticulum, and 87 mL Prostate who underwent a Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Simple Prostatectomy, Bladder Diverticulectomy, and right ureteral reimplantation.
The total operative time (skin to skin) was160 min, with an EBL 200 mL. Discharged home POD #1 with foley catheter. Pathology Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (69 g resected), Diverticulum with acute and chronic inflammation, benign right ureter. Foley removed on POD #10 after a normal cystogram, and right ureteral stent removed 6 weeks postoperatively.
Conclusions : The Robotic Platform allows for the treatment of complex operative urologic conditions with minimal morbidity and acceptabel operative outcomes.
