Low Pressure Robotic Cystectomy and Robotic Urinary Diversion

Surgeon's Masterclass


The Robotic Cystectomy Masterclass organised by the Vattikuti Foundation focuses on the role of using the new technique of low pneumoperitoneum pressure for robotic cystectomy. This is an exceptional program suggested for Urologists doing the procedures listed in the title plus Neobladders. Dr Gagan Gautam serves as Moderator. Dr Nikhil Vasdev shared his findings regarding patient benefits of Open vs. Robotic Cystectomy, using data from 70-patients while using the new CMR Robot. Prof. Karel Decaestecker uses the second part of the Masterclass to present Radical Cystectomy for Bladder Cancer and goes over the technical aspects of robotic intracorporeal ileal conduits and neobladders. He compares many different techniques used today and shares his own surgical procedure- and several tips & tricks. Both researchers revealed some eye-opening techniques and statistics. This one-hour masterclass (plus discussion) aims to facilitate patient outcomes undergoing not only a robotic cystectomy but also robotic intracorporeal urinary diversion. Urologic surgeons will hear and see the very latest on the subject thanks to our panel of international experts, including renal transplant surgeon Dr Mahendra Bhandari, VF CEO. Presentations, Q & A and discussion, with PPT’s, photos, diagrams and videos. 1:18:49
