Purpose: Open surgery, endoscopic technique, and standard laparoscopic technique are surgical options for the management of bladder diverticuli. In this article, we report robot-assisted bladder diverticulectomy ( RABD) and photoselective vaporization of prostate ( PVP) in the same patient sequentially. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of RABD combined with PVP.
