The Vescica Ileale Padovana (VIP) was first described in 1989 as a technique for total bladder replacement and gained popularity due to technical simplicity and functional advantages. Our preliminary results showed that robot-assisted VIP appears to be a feasible technique for robot-assisted totally intracorporeal bladder replacement following robotic radical cystectomy. We report the step-by-step technique of robot-assisted VIP that follows the open surgical principles of detubularization and double folding, mixing the advantages of VIP with the benefits of the robotic approach.

Abstract

The Vescica Ileale Padovana (VIP) was first described in 1989 as a technique for total bladder replacement and gained popularity due to technical simplicity and functional advantages. Our preliminary results showed that robot-assisted VIP appears to be a feasible technique for robot-assisted totally intracorporeal bladder replacement following robotic radical cystectomy. We report the step-by-step technique of robot-assisted VIP that follows the open surgical principles of detubularization and double folding, mixing the advantages of VIP with the benefits of the robotic approach.
