Abstract

Radical cystectomy has emerged as a standard treatment option for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer. The impact of nerve-sparing cystectomy with urethra and vaginal sparing has not been quantified with validated questionnaires. We report our experience with nerve-sparing orthotopic radical cystectomy and the impact on postoperative sexual function.
