Abstract

Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) is technically challenging with an overall morbidity of 17-33%. We present an illustrative case of malignant RPLND following curative resection of colorectal cancer using the fusion of robotic surgery and 3D-modelling in preoperative planning and in intraoperative integration of these models to aid precision dissection.
