Joel Sumfest, MD, department of urology, narrates his surgical technique using the daVinci robot. This demonstrates surgical transference of the isolated appendix so that it can be used as a conduit for urinary diversion from the bladder to the skin in children with cloacal exstrophy or neurogenic bladder, making a route for insertion of a catheter.
