Anatomical constraints make lateral nodal clearance, in rectal cancer, challanging. Since most of the nodal burden is along the internal iliac/pudendal and obturator arteries (1) significant genitourinary dysfunction is a risk; the degree of dysfunction directly correlating with surgical extent.(2) 3D vision, stable platform, dexterity and precision of robotic system gives an unparalleled advantage over other approaches, to perform this procedure with minimum risk.
