Complications of robotic surgery of the urinary tract

Kelly A. Swords, Craig A Peters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As robotic surgery's use becomes more widespread in urology's pediatric population, it becomes important to consider and be prepared for possible complications. Robotic technology will also begin to play a role in the management of surgical complications with reoperative procedures that may be facilitated by this approach. As in all surgery, the key to limiting operative adverse events is first prevention, second recognition, and finally management. This chapter is divided into preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative complications.
