We present the first published case of a pediatric robot-assisted prostatectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy for refractory prostatic embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. The patient is a 7 year old male who had been treated with three cycles of chemotherapy and radiation, who underwent prostatectomy and lymphadenectomy for a recurrent mass. Surgery was uncomplicated and yielded negative surgical margins. We highlight the surgical technique and feasibility of utilizing robotic surgery for pediatric prostatectomy.

Since its advent in 2001, robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy has become the gold standard treatment for the management of localised prostate cancer. Pelvic lymphocoele is most commonly found ...
We aimed to report the impact of perioperative factors that have not been well-studied on continence recovery following robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP).
The environmental determinants of pediatric embryonal tumors remain unclear. Because of the growing concern over the impact of exposures to traffic-related air pollution on pediatric cancer, we conduc...
To present a original technique of robotic-assisted urethra-sparing simple prostatectomy (RAUSP) for treating patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
The cornerstone of treatment for endometrial carcinoma is total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophoprectomy. Pelvic lymphadenectomy, with or without para-aortic lymphadenectomy, plays ...

A malignant solid tumor arising from mesenchymal tissues which normally differentiate to form striated muscle. It can occur in a wide variety of sites. It is divided into four distinct types: pleomorphic, predominantly in male adults; alveolar (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, ALVEOLAR), mainly in adolescents and young adults; embryonal (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, EMBRYONAL), predominantly in infants and children; and botryoidal, also in young children. It is one of the most frequently occurring soft tissue sarcomas and the most common in children under 15.

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
