    Abstract

    Traditionally, ureteric injuries during minimally invasive procedures have meant that conversion to an open operation was required. With the popularity of the Da Vinci robot, vision and access within the pelvis has improved and suturing in particular has become much easier when compared to laparoscopy. This has facilitated the completion of repair of injuries in a minimally invasive manner on a more regular basis. High index of suspicion and early definitive repair assist in reducing morbidity and further associated complications.
