The first part deals with radical cystectomy, which is the surgery with high morbidity and mortality among urologic operations. The second part deals with pelvic lymphadenectomy (PLND), which remains the standard treatment in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer and high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. The third part deals with robot-assisted radical cystectomy. The fourth and the final part deals with several forms of urinary diversion.
