Abstract

Enhanced recovery after surgery protocols have greatly advanced the recovery after radical cystectomy by hastening the return of bowel function and decreasing the length of stay. In an effort to expand these programs, incisional negative pressure wound therapy should be considered to decrease the rate of surgical site infection and overall patient morbidity.
