Robotic ureteroureterostomy in children with a duplex collecting system

Robotic ureteroureterostomy in children with a duplex collecting system Duplex collecting system pathology can be handled using an ablative procedure or reconstructive procedure even in the light of a poorly functioning moiety. We propose that, when a reconstructive procedure is an option, a robotic ureteroureterostomy is safe and feasible. Fifteen children between the ages of 6 months and 10 years (mean 31.26 months) underwent transperitoneal robotic ureteroureterostomy for duplex collecting system pathology. The surgical procedure included transperitoneal robotic approach. Outcome measures included operative time, length of hospital stay, and resolution of symptoms. Mean operative time was 1.2 h (range 0.75–2.2 h) for the entire procedure, including the cystoscopic evaluation. Length of stay averaged 20.8 h (range 15–26 h). All postoperative imaging demonstrated intact, well-draining collecting systems. The presenting symptomatology resolved in all the patients in whom symptoms were present. Robotic ureteroureterostomy is feasible and safe in the pediatric population and should be considered part of the surgical armamentarium when upper tract preservation seems warranted. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Robotic Surgery Springer Journals
