This video shows a step by step approach to developing the lateral spaces in cases of pelvic lymphadenectomy, starting from the opening of the peritoneum to the development of the paravesical, pararectal, and ileolumbar fossa. During surgery, Professor Wattiez describes the anatomical landmarks of the spaces and explains basic rules of laparoscopic dissection, providing essential knowledge to perform this procedure.
