Background: Bladder and surrounding tissue resection followed by creation of a continent urinary reservoir is the gold standard treatment for invasive bladder cancer. In recent years, the da Vinci robot has played a major role in this procedure. Our objective was to describe our surgical technique, a robot-assisted laparoscopic radical cystoprostatectomy and totally intrabdominal ortothopic ileal neobladder construction (Studer).
Clinic case: We present the case of a 79-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of transitional cell bladder carcinoma. The patient underwent radical cystoprostatectomy with urinary diversion. The procedure was performed with the use of the da Vinci Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA). Total operative time was 7 h, and the estimated blood loss was 500 ml. There were no intra- or postoperative complications, and the patient’s hospitalization was 7 days. At early follow-up, oncological and functional results were favorable.
Conclusions: Robot-assisted cystoprostatectomy and urinary diversion are feasible techniques, although their role in management of infiltrative bladder cancer is not well defined.

Key words: Cystectomy, robot, ortothopic ileal neobladder, cancer, cystoprostatectomy.
