During our experimental trial we achieved laparoscopic cistectomies with urinary diversion to prove our manual capability with the reconstructive surgery. We executed, on male pigs, 10 cistectomies with urinary diversion using laparoscopic technique. We performed 5 ureterocutaneostomies on 5 pigs and, in the other ones, 5 ureterosigmoidostomies. During UCS the pigs laid in lateral position, and during USS in supine position. The average time of the operation is going to reduce in consideration of the overcoming of the initial techno-instrumental difficulties and is 60 minutes for cistectomy, 30 minutes for ureterocutaneostomy and 120 minutes for ureterosigmoidostomy.
