Abstract

The functional and oncological results of laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy (L-RPLND) have proven to be as efficacious as open series (O-RPLND) after 5 year follow-up. In the most recent publication series from high-volume laparoscopy centres, there was a trend towards fewer complications in L-RPLND compared to O-RPLND. Up to now only two case series of four treated patients have been reported adopting a robotic-assisted retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy for testicular cancer so that it is not yet possible to judge whether it is useful tool or not.
