Urinary and urologic complications of laparoscopic and robotic urologic procedures
Cell Transformation, Neoplastic
Urinary complications are some of the more common complications of laparoscopic urologic surgery. The overall incidence of urinary tract injury following laparoscopy urologic surgery in large series is under 1% [1, 2]. These injuries can occur both in upper tract and in pelvic urologic laparoscopy. They include injures to the ureter, urinary leaks after extirpative and reconstructive procedures, bladder injuries, and anastomotic leaks. In general, urinary complications after robotic-assisted laparoscopic procedures is similar and is thus discussed together. © 2010 Humana Press.
