INTRODUCTION: To compare oncological and functional results of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and brachytherapy (BT) with a single-center prospective randomized study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2012 to January 2014, 165 patients with low risk prostate cancer, prostate volume ≤ 50 g, normal urinary (IPSS ≤ 7 and mean flow rate ≥ 15 mL/sec) and erectile functions (IIEF-5 > 17) were enrolled and randomly assigned to the RARP or BT group...

REVIEW
Alice Semerjian, Christian P Pavlovich
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Extraperitoneal robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (eRARP) is an alternative to the more commonly employed transperitoneal RARP (tRARP) for treatment of clinically localized prostate cancer. The purpose of this review is to discuss indications in which eRARP would be a more favorable approach in comparison to tRARP. In addition, we will discuss the safety and technique of eRARP. RECENT FINDINGS: Recently published work has highlighted the outcomes and safety of eRARP in comparison to tRARP; specifically that eRARP is not inferior to tRARP...

Pelvic lymphoceles are an infrequent complication after pelvic surgery and develop shortly after the surgery in most cases. We experienced a case of delayed infection of a lymphocele 6 months after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and pelvic lymphadenectomy. In this case, antimicrobial chemotherapy and percutaneous drainage were effective, and there was no recurrence of the disease. Most urologists do not recognize that infected lymphoceles can develop a long time after surgery; thus, infected lymphoceles should be kept in mind in patients with nonspecific infectious symptoms, regardless of the length of time after surgery...

AIM: To compare the functional outcomes of bilateral nerve-sparing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) at 12 months after surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of two groups, each of 50 sexually active patients with localized low risk prostate cancer. The first group comprised patients who underwent RRP, while the second underwent RARP. All operations were carried out sequentially from January to August 2015 using nerve-sparing technique...

INTRODUCTION: As urology training shifts toward competency-based frameworks, the need for tools for high stakes assessment of trainees is crucial. Validated assessment metrics are lacking for many robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). As it is quickly becoming the gold standard for treatment of localized prostate cancer, the development and validation of a RARP assessment tool for training is timely. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We recruited 13 expert RARP surgeons from the United States and Canada to serve as our Delphi panel...

BACKGROUND: To analyze the correlation of surgical margin status with other findings on final pathology and risk of biochemical recurrence (BCR) in patients undergoing robot assisted radical prostatectomy (RALP). METHODS: Bundang Prostatectomy Database was reviewed to identify patients who underwent RARP from 2007 to 2011 and had a positive surgical margin (PSM) on final pathology. Pathology findings were reviewed. BCR-free survival was calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method...

AIM: To report the outcomes of salvage robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (S-RaRP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fourteen patients underwent S-RaRP. The mean initial prostatic-specific antigen level was 14.3 ng/ml and mean Gleason score was 6.93. Initial definitive treatment was external irradiation in 11 cases, cyberknife in two, and high-intensity focused ultrasound in one. Time from definitive treatment to S-RaRP was a mean of 36.5 months. RESULTS: The mean console time was 134...

CONTEXT: Some of the high costs of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and proton beam therapy may be offset by better outcomes or less resource use during the treatment episode. OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the literature to identify the key economic trade-offs implicit in a particular treatment choice for prostate cancer. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We systematically reviewed the literature according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) statement and protocol...

INTRODUCTION: We sought to investigate the impact of preoperative and postoperative membranous urethral length (MUL) on urinary continence using 3 Tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). METHODS: Between 2008 and 2013, 190 men with RARP underwent preoperative and postoperative MRI. Patients who received adjuvant radiotherapy or who were lost to followup were excluded, leaving 186 patients eligible for analysis...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to assess the safety and feasibility of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) for elderly Japanese (aged ≥ 70 years) patients with clinically localized prostate cancer (PCa). METHODS: From April 2012 to March 2016, a total of 302 consecutive patients with clinically localized PCa underwent RARP at our institute. In this series, 109 (36.1%) and 193 (63.9%) of the patients were divided into older (aged ≥ 70 years) and younger (aged <70 years) groups, respectively...

BACKGROUND: The definition of continence after robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RARP) has not been consistently defined, with many studies only noting the amount of safety pads used. We therefore examined what definition of continence would be appropriate, employing both the International Consultation on Incontinence Modular Questionnaire Short Form (ICIQ-SF) and the number of pads used by patients. We also evaluated the relationship between the number of pads used and degree of incontinence...

BACKGROUND: Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has now become a gold standard approach in radical prostatectomy. The aim of this study was to investigate incidence and risk factors of inguinal hernia (IH) after RARP. METHODS: This study included 307 consecutive men who underwent RARP for the treatment of prostate cancer from January 2011 to August 2015. The incidence of IH after RARP was investigated. Clinical and pathological factors were also investigated to assess relationship with development of postoperative IH...

BACKGROUND: To assess oncologic and surgical outcomes in patients subjected to standard (S) versus extended (E) pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). METHODS: From February 2009 to December 2015 a total of 184 consecutive patients underwent RARP and either standard or extended PLND for localized prostate cancer (PCa). Descriptive statistics compared clinical and pathological variables between groups. Logistic regression identified potential predictors of lymph node invasion (LNI)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the benefit of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) in the low-risk prostate cancer (PCa) patients suitable for active surveillance and in the high-risk PCa patients who would be considered for alternative treatments such as radiotherapy (RT) and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) instead of radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Of 548 patients, who underwent RARP, 298 PCa patients (258 low-risk and 40 high-risk) with a mean of 3...

PURPOSE: Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) provides significant advantages in short-term oncological outcomes for prostate cancer patients. However, data regarding the long-term cancer control outcomes of RARP are limited and inconsistent. This study aimed to evaluate these long-term outcomes. METHODS: Medline, Scopus, and other databases were searched for studies published from January 2010 to July 2016. Case series and prospective cohort studies on the long-term cancer control outcomes of patients who underwent RARP were subjected to meta-analyses by using the R statistical software...
