Abstract

Robot-assisted procedures are slowly invading minimally invasive urologic surgery. When superior visibility, meticulous dissection, or complex reconstruction is needed, robotic surgery may offer benefits over conventional laparoscopy. We report the use of the da Vinci robotic system for laparoscopic psoas hitch-supported ureteral reimplantation. We believe this procedure was facilitated technically compared with conventional laparoscopy.
