Pediatric Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Pyeloplasty: Where Are We Now?

Current Urology Reports 2024 Februrary 8
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review aims to provide an in-depth exploration of the recent advancements in robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty (RALP) and its evolving landscape in the context of infant pyeloplasty, complex genitourinary (GU) anatomy, recurrent ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, cost considerations, and the learning curve.

RECENT FINDINGS: Recent literature highlights the safety and efficacy of RALP in treating the infant population, patients with complex GU anomalies, and recurrent UPJO which were all traditionally managed using the open approach. Cost considerations are evolving, with the potential for RALP to have a lesser financial burden. In addition, the learning curve for RALP is diminishing due to robust training programs and advances in research. RALP has become the gold standard in the treatment of UPJO in pediatric urology at many children's hospitals. Surgeon comfort and research in this space allow safe and successful reconstruction in the most challenging of cases.
