Abstract

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and the eighth most common cancer in women in the United States [1]. Radical cystectomy is considered the standard therapeutic modality for muscle-invasive bladder cancer [2-4]. Most recently, minimally invasive approaches have been shown to offer considerable benefit in reduction of both major and minor morbidities as well as overall reduction in hospital stay [5].
