Intracorporeal Urinary Diversion: Ileal Conduit

  • Isabelle S. Keller
  • Hubert JohnEmail author


The intracorporeal urinary diversion after robotic-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) is a major challenge to the surgeon and the assisting team especially due to the limited field of vision and the long operative time during the learning curve. Therefore most RARC surgeons perform an extracorporeal technique for the urinary diversion using the incision to deliver the cystectomy specimen.
