Abstract

An efficient laparoendoscopic technique for bilateral intravesical ureteral reimplantation would offer the certainty of cure provided by open surgery with the reduced morbidity of laparoscopy. We have assessed the clinical utility of robotically assisted intravesical bilateral ureteral reimplantation in children. Ports are placed in the dome of the bladder, and the procedure is performed in a fashion identical to that used for open transtrigonal reimplantation. A catheter is left in place for 1 or 2 days. With modifications in port placement using the VersaStep® radially dilating sheath system, we have not had any port-site leakage. One patient has unilateral persisting low-grade reflux. This technique may be a useful option for antireflux surgery and should be further refined.
