Objective: During the last years, the number of indications for robotic assisted surgery has dramatically increased. In our video, we wanted to present a case of with total intracorporeal ileal conduit for muscle invasive bladder cancer.
Methods: Our video shows our operative technique.
Results: We safely performed the robotic assisted procedure.
Conclusions: Robotic assisted surgery offers the same results as in open surgery in a minimally invasive fashion with better vision, allowing very meticulous and precise handling. A robotic assisted radical cystectomy with total intracorporeal ileal conduit represents a feasible, reproducible and safe operative technique.
