We described and assessed our experienced of extraperitoneal laparoscopic radical prostatectomy performed using the da Vinci (Intuitive Surgical, Mountain View, California) robotic system.
Materials and Methods
From 2014 to 2015, 24 consecutive patients with clinically localized prostate cancer underwent extraperitoneal, robotic assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. After development of the extraperitoneal space with conventional laparoscopic instrument, the surgeon performed robot assisted extraperitoneal laparoscopic radical prostatectomy from the console. The assistant used conventional laparoscopic instruments only with suction-irrigation and laparoscopic allis to facilitate prostatectomy. Perioperative data and pathological results were recorded.
No difficulties were noted when developing the extraperitoneal space. We use balloon dilator to create extraperitoneal space ; confirm and insert trocars with conventional laparoscope. The trocar site is the same with conventional laparoscopic setup. Mean operative time was 174 minutes. Mean catheterization time were 11 days. No major postoperative complications or open conversions were observed..
The extraperitoneal approach was feasible with the da Vinci robotic system.
The procedure offers the advantages of improved dexterity and visualization of the robot, while avoiding the abdominal cavity and potential associated morbidity. Da Vinci robotic extraperitoneal approach for radical prostatectomy simulates the standard open retropubic technique seem will be likely to gain popularity.
