  28. 28. Robotics in Urology <ul><li>Jonas and Kramer of Frankfurt University Hospital recently completed 4 of a series of 30 cases using the da Vinci robotic system. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Totally Extraperitoneal vs Transabdominal <ul><li>A proposed study to compare the two routes of access was abandoned because the transabdominal method was judged superior </li></ul><ul><ul><li>more room for dissection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>less trouble maintaining pneumoperitoneum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>easier to dissect the seminal vesicles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>difficult to apply the totally extraperitoneal method to patients with large prostates </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Conclusions <ul><li>Oncologic results of laparoscopic prostatectomy appear similar to the open procedure given the available early data </li></ul><ul><li>Functional results of laparoscopic prostatectomy are encouraging but patient numbers are as yet too few to make conclusions on potency and continence </li></ul>
  31. 31. Conclusions <ul><li>Although it can be performed totally extraperitoneally, we recommend the transperitoneal route </li></ul><ul><ul><li>provides larger working space avoids excluding patients based on prostate size </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>easier to maintain pneumoperitoneum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>better visualization posteriorly means safer dissection of the seminal vesicles and rectum </li></ul></ul>
