Robot-assisted radical cystectomy reduces recovery time vs. open surgery in bladder cancer

Use of robot-assisted vs. open radical cystectomy led to a significantly increased number of days alive and out of the hospital among patients with nonmetastatic bladder cancer.
The results, published in JAMA, also showed robot-assisted radical cystectomy with intracorporeal urinary diversion resulted in a 52% decrease in the chance for hospital readmission and 77% reduction in prevalence of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Although robot-assisted radical cystectomy has been performed with increasing frequency, it is unknown whether total intracorporeal surgery improves recovery
