Laparoscopic Robotic assisted resection of uterosacral ligament endometriotic nodule, left terminal partial ureterectomy, partial cystectomy and ureteroneocystostomy.
This video shows a stepwise approach to laparoscopic robotic assisted urinary tract endometriosis management demonstrating its feasibility and safety. Urinary-tract endometriosis affect only the 0,3% to 6% of women affected by endometriosis, amongst which the most common localization is the bladder (84-90%) [1]. The ureteral compression is rare but can lead to obstruction up to silent loss of renal function [2], which is one of the main factors to take into account in the management of this disease [3].
