Abstract

The treatment of choice for urachal carcinoma has traditionally been an open approach, either by radical cystectomy or the more recently adopted bladder-sparing approach of extended partial cystectomy and umbilectomy. We report for the first time a laparoscopic technique for an extended partial cystectomy with en bloc umbilectomy for the management of urachal carcinoma in a 41-year-old man.
