Surgical removal with radical prostatectomy has been a cornerstone for the treatment of prostate cancer and is associated with level one evidence for survival advantage compared to watchful waiting. Since the first structured robotic program was launched in 2000, robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has had a rapid diffusion and surpassed its open (ORP) and laparoscopic (LRP) counterparts in the United States and is progressively expanding in other countries. Interestingly, this common acceptance of RARP was initially driven in the paucity of robust clinical evidence...

Background Maintenance of optimal vision during minimally invasive surgery is crucial to maintaining operative awareness, efficiency and safety. Hampered vision is commonly caused by laparoscopic lens fogging (LLF) which has prompted the development of various anti-fogging fluids and warming devices. However, limited comparative evidence exists in contemporary literature. Despite technological advancements there remains no consensus as to superior methods to prevent LLF or restore visual acuity once LLF has occurred...

INTRODUCTION: During Robotic-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy (RARP), the prostate may be approached extraperiteoneally (eRARP) or transperitoneally (tRARP). The former avoids the abdominal cavity which might be of benefit in patients who have had prior abdominal or pelvic surgery (PAPS). Our objective was to compare the outcomes of patients with PAPS undergoing either technique. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients treated with RARP from July 1, 2003-Dec. 31, 2014 with a minimum follow-up of 3 months was undertaken...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of benign histology after partial nephrectomy (PN) in patients with presumed malignancy from preoperative imaging. Further, preoperative predictors of benign lesions and perioperative outcomes were also assessed. METHODS: A series of patients undergoing PN for renal masses was identified using a prospectively maintained database. Patients were excluded for known genetic conditions, if more than one renal mass was resected, or if standard preoperative imaging was not suspicious for RCC...

Surgical management of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) has historically been performed with open pyeloplasty. With the advent of endourology, laparoscopy, and robotics, minimally-invasive techniques have been described and accepted as alternatives to open surgery. Each of these approaches has its own advantages and disadvantages, equipment needs, degree of invasiveness, and experience of the treating urologist. Advocates and critics have their own say as to their preferred technique. In this article, we review the chronological evolution of these techniques and discuss their current role in the management of UPJO...
