Abstract

Introduction: The da Vinci Surgical System has become extremely popular in the field of urology for procedures requiring complex reconstructive maneuvers, such as radical prostatectomy and pyeloplasty. A natural extension of these procedures is the use of the da Vinci system for complex urinary tract reconstruction deep in the pelvis, such as bladder diverticulectomy. Technical Considerations: In our report and accompanying Video, we have demonstrated some technical tips and tricks with regard to patient selection, preoperative imaging, patient positioning, port placement, intraoperative diverticulum recognition/excision, and cystotomy repair that the surgeon might find beneficial for successful completion of robotic-assisted bladder diverticulectomy. Conclusions: The tips and tricks we have presented might aid in the successful completion of robotic bladder diverticulectomy.
