Ureteroenteric Stricture Outcomes: Secondary Analysis of An RCT Comparing Open vs Robotic Cystectomy

Br J Urol.

In this study at a high volume center, robotic cystectomy with extracorporeal urinary diversion achieved excellent ureteral anastomotic outcomes. Purported increased risk of stricture is not a reason to avoid robot-assisted radical cystectomy. Future research should examine the impact of different surgical techniques and operator experience on the risk of stricture, especially as more intracorporeal diversions are performed.
