Laparoscopic radical cystectomy

Laparoscopic radical cystectomy

Arab Journal of Urology 10(1): 40-45

Laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) has emerged as a minimally invasive alternative to open radical cystectomy (ORC). This review focuses on patient selection criteria, technical aspects and postoperative outcomes of LRC. Material for the review was obtained by a PubMed search over the last 10 years, using the keywords 'laparoscopic radical cystectomy' and 'laparoscopic bladder cancer' in human subjects. Twenty-two publications selected for relevance and content were used for this review from the total search yield. The level of evidence was IIb and III. LRC results in comparable short- and intermediate-range oncological outcomes to ORC, with generally longer operative times but decreased blood loss, postoperative pain and hospital stay. Overall operative and postoperative morbidity are equivalent. In experienced hands, LRC is an acceptable minimally invasive alternative to ORC in selected patients, with the main advantage of decreased blood loss and postoperative pain, as well as a shorter hospital stay and recovery.
