Robotic Transabdominal Approach to Retrorectal Mass
This video describes the removal of a retrorectal mass via a transabdominal approach in a patient with an incidental finding of a presacral soft tissue mass on MRI during a prostate cancer workup. This video reviews the etiology and workup of a presacral mass in addition to describing the transabdominal rectal-preserving resection of the mass. This includes port placement, instruments, and accessories, as well as tips for a total mesorectal excision dissection and deep pelvic dissection.
- Etiology and workup of presacral mass
