Robotic surgery for vesicoureteral reflux and megaureter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The evolution of minimally invasive surgery in pediatric urology has slowly moved towards reconstructive surgery for vesicoureteral reflux and megaureter surgery. Robotic technology has permitted this to potentially become a key element in the surgical armamentarium, yet the technical procedure remains incompletely defined. This chapter presents the basic surgical techniques, current results as well as a discussion of may limitations in methods that potentially contribute to the variable results reported in the literature to date.
