Abstract

Text-Size + 

  • Seminal vesicle cysts combined with ipsilateral renal agenesis, ectopic ureter and giant right ampullary cyst of vas deferens represent a rare urological anomaly, Zinners syndrome. In symptomatic patients' seminal vesiculectomy along with enbloc excision of the ipsilateral ampullary cyst, ectopic ureter and dysplastic, renal tissue is the preferred treatment option. We report robotic assisted removal of a large seminal vesicle cyst with ipsilateral renal agenesis, ectopic ureter and a giant right ampullary cyst of vas deferens in a 34-year-old male. We reviewed the literature about this rare urological anomaly and novel usage of da Vinci surgical robotic surgical system (DSRS) (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, California) in performing this procedure.
