Abstract

A robot-assisted technique for radical cystectomy must address all three stages of this technically challenging operation: extirpation of the primary tumor, adequate lymphadenectomy, and a urinary diversion method that satisfies that patient's needs. In this review chapter, we will focus on the lymph node dissection component and outline the history of its development, its contribution to oncologic outcomes, and a step-by-step detailed description of technique with matching video clips and still images.
