  1. Per-case total costs of ORC and RARC and the types and rates of urinary diversions performed in the included studies aPatients with continent cutaneous tracts were not included in the analysis; bno significant differences in the rates of urinary diversion types performed between ORC and RARC groups; csurgeon fees were not included; and dsignificant cost differences existed between ORC and RARC ethe rest is unknown
