A New Technical Approach for Extraperitoneal Laparoscopic Bladder Diverticulectomy

Publication: Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques
Volume 17, Issue Number 5

Abstract

In this paper, the authors report on a new, modified laparoscopic technique to remove a large bladder diverticulum.
A 26-year-old male with a urinary problem underwent an ultrasound, as well as intravenous urography and cystoscopy examinations, which showed a large bladder diverticulum. The diverticulum was operated upon laparoscopically. The extraperitoneal laparoscopic intervention was facilitated by balloon placed into the diverticulum. The new technique for the laparoscopic diverticulumectomy procedure was successful and the operating time was 140 minutes. There were no perioperative complications.
In conclusion, the laparoscopic removal of the baldder diverticulum is a safe and minimally invasive intervention. The introduction of a ballon into the diverticulum makes the operation easier.
