Robotic management of large stone disease: a case series.

J Robot Surg 2020 Mar 5. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Urological Surgery, Metro Health, University of Michigan Health, Grand Rapids, MI, USA.

The gold standard for urologic management of large stone disease traditionally has been percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). An alternative to PCNL is robotic pyelolithotomy (RP), which continues to gain traction. This study is a retrospective review of ten cases performed over a 2 year period presenting operative outcomes for large stone disease treated with RP. Read More

The role of robotic surgery in the management of renal tract calculi.

Transl Androl Urol 2019 Sep;8(Suppl 4):S457-S460

Department of Urology, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle, UK.

The role of robotic assisted surgery in contemporary urolithiasis management is in its infancy. The mainstay in the management of renal tract calculi remains ureterorenoscopy (URS), extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). However, in rare clinical circumstances, such as large impacted pelvic and ureteric calculi, endo-urological techniques may not be adequate. Read More

Department of Urology, Sulaymaniyah General Teaching Hospital, Sulaymaniyah, Iraq.

Ureteral stents (Double-J stents) have been widely used in urology to prevent or relieve ureteral obstruction and have become an integral part of urologic practice. However, if ureteral stents are kept for a prolonged period or neglected, they can cause significant morbidity because of complications such as stent migration, encrustation, occlusion, stone formation, and fragmentation. Therefore, it is crucial to remove stents as soon as possible after they have served their purpose, to prevent complications and morbidity. Read More

A percutaneous nephrostomy was placed for drainage as a DJ stent could not be traversed into the left renal pelvis with retrograde pyelography demonstrating complete cut-off at L4-L5 level. After stabilization, she was found to have uretero-pelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) in left solitary functioning kidney with long-segment upper ureteric stricture and nadir serum creatinine 1.

Expanding the indications of robotic surgery in urology: A systematic review of the literature.

Arab J Urol 2018 Sep 7;16(3):270-284. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Bristol Urological Institute, Southmead Hospital, Bristol, UK.

Objectives: To evaluate the recent developments in robotic urological surgery, as the introduction of robotic technology has overcome many of the difficulties of pure laparoscopic surgery enabling surgeons to perform complex minimally invasive procedures with a shorter learning curve. Robot-assisted surgery (RAS) is now offered as the standard for various surgical procedures across multiple specialities.

Methods: A systematic search of MEDLINE, PubMed and EMBASE databases was performed to identify studies evaluating robot-assisted simple prostatectomy, salvage radical prostatectomy, surgery for urolithiasis, distal ureteric reconstruction, retroperitoneal lymph node dissection, augmentation ileocystoplasty, and artificial urinary sphincter insertion.
