Abstract

Laparoscopic pelvic lymph node dissection has provided a means of staging urologic malignancies with reduced mobidity. The predominant indication for lymphadenectomy is for prognostic purposes. It has been shown in prostate, bladder, urethral, and penile cancer that metastasis to pelvic lymph nodes portends a worse prognosis. The reduced morbidity and increased laparoscopic experience, coupled with a greater diagnostic yield with extended lymphadenectomies, has led to a more aggressive approach to lymphadenectomy in recent years. In this chapter the indications for laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy are reviewed. The pelvic anatomy and surgical technique of laparoscopic and robotic lymphadenectomy is described. Finally, the outcomes in terms of efficacy and complications are summarized.
