Abstract

We describe “The Lister Technique”—a new 3 step procedure developed in our department for robotic assisted laparoscopic nephroureterectomy (RANU). Our new technique facilitates the complete excision of the whole ureter including ureteric orifice and reduces this risk of tumour spillage from the distal ureter without the need for bivalving the bladder. Our initial data indicates that the technique is associated with reduction in bladder recurrence post-operatively in comparison to current published series. Longer follow up and larger patient numbers are required to validate these results further.
