Abstract

Robot-assisted radical cystectomy with or without intracorporeal urinary diversion has recently been explored as a viable surgical option for multiple, recurrent and muscle invasive bladder cancer. In this report, an 84-year-old female diagnosed as having invasive bladder cancer underwent robot-assisted radical cystectomy with intracorporeal cutaneous ureterostomy: in the third postoperative day, computed tomography of the abdomen was suggestive of incarcerated hernia through the abdominal wall defect created by the left ureterostomy. Subsequently, the parastomal hernia was repaired laparoscopically. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a symptomatic parastomal hernia related to the cutaneous ureterostomy. © 2021 Published by Elsevier Inc.
