Abstract

PURPOSE:

To evaluate the feasibility and safety of totally robotic laparoscopic cystoprostatectomy for neurogenic bladder, with intracorporeal ileal-conduit urinary diversion in tetraplegic patients with severe neurogenic bladder complications.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Two men, 41 and 38 years old, with complete post-traumatic C7-C8 quadriplegia and poor lower urinary-tract condition underwent totally transperitoneally performed cystoprostatectomy and ileal-conduit urinary diversion with robotic assistance (Da Vinci).

RESULTS:

The procedures were completed without open conversion. The total surgical time was 9.25 and 6.75 hours, respectively. There were no intraoperative complications. In the postoperative period, both patients had mild complications (pulmonary and urinary infections) that were treated successfully medically. The postoperative hospital stay was 13 days in both cases.

CONCLUSIONS:

Our results demonstrate the safety and feasibility of robot-assisted laparoscopic cystoprostatectomy with ileal-conduit urinary diversion in two tetraplegic patients.
