Objective: To describe the step-by-step technique for robotic intracorporeal ileal conduit urinary diversion (ICUD) following radical cystectomy performed by using the novel da Vinci SP surgical system (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA). Methods: Four consecutive patients (2 males and 2 females) were initially counseled for robotic cystectomy with ICUD performed by using the da Vinci SP surgical system. Surgeries were performed by duplicating the steps of the institutional approach for intracorporeal ICUD performed with the multiarms robotic platform. Perioperative outcomes were analyzed. Data were collected under institutional review board approval (IRB 13-780). Results: Single-port robot-assisted radical cystectomy with ICUD was successfully completed in 3 patients (2 males and 1 female). Mean robotic operative time for ICUD was 75 minutes (range 67-90). There was no conversion to standard multiarms robotic approach. One patient needed to be converted to extracorporeal urinary diversion due to severe adhesions of small bowels. No additional ports were placed. Neither transfusions nor intraoperative complications occurred. All patients were discharged on postoperative day 5. One patient reported self-limited nausea and vomiting after discharge (Clavien grade I). Conclusion: In our preliminary experience, ICUD after robot-assisted radical cystectomy is feasible using the da Vinci SP surgical system. Further comparative studies with open and multiarms robotic approaches are warranted.
