Robot-assisted anterior pelvic exenteration for bladder cancer in the female

Chapter

Abstract

  • Radical cystectomy remains a gold standard oncologic treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer and for those with high-grade, recurrent, noninvasive tumors. The applications of robotics to female cystectomy have not been well described. However, given the successful application of robotics in male patients, and growing experience with robotics in female pelvic procedures in the gynecologic literature, the stage has been set for its application to anterior pelvic exenteration for female patients with bladder cancer.
