To describe the technique of Robot-assisted laparoscopic undiversion from a orthotopic ileal neobladder to an ileal conduit.
We report a case of a female patient who previously underwent radical cystectomy and orthotopic ileal neobladder affected by recurrent urinary tract infections and urolithiasis of the distal right ureter.
The video highlights surgical steps of neobladder removal and ileal conduit configuration with a Wallace uretero-ileal anastomosis.
Mean operative time was 180 minutes, intraoperative blood loss was 100 ml, perioperative course was uneventful.
Robot- assisted laparoscopic undiversion from an orthotopic ileal neobladder to an ileal conduit is a challenging but technically feasible procedure.
