- Pediatric surgery began with single-incision flank surgery and has evolved to multi-port laparoscopic and robotic approaches. Recent technological advances with the single-port (SP) robot have allowed for transition back to single-incision surgery.
- The Mitrofanoff principle is a well established strategy in pediatric urology, with the appendix and Yang-Monti tube being the most used channels. The search for an alternative tube with less morbidity is justified. Hence, we present a patient treated via an alternative approach in which the channel was constructed from two lower abdominal transverse skin flaps (the RPM technique).
