OBJECTIVE To compare urinary continent rate at six and 12-month postoperative period, and perioperative outcome between robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) at Siriraj Hospital. MATERIAL AND METHOD All medical records of patients performed RALP and LRP between 2005 and 2010 were reviewed.(More)
Laparoscopic ureterolithotomy was performed on 10 patients with upper ureteric stones indicated for open ureterolithotomy after failed prior minimally invasive approaches. Stone size ranged from 7 to 15 mm. (mean 9.3). The routes of approach were all done transperitoneally except in one case in which the retroperitoneal route was initially attempted and(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the surgical and oncologic outcomes in patients who underwent retroperitoneoscopic nephroureterectomy (RNU) in comparison to standard open nephroureterectomy (ONU) for upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma (TCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS From April 2001 to January 2007, 60 total nephroureterectomy were performed for upper(More)
BACKGROUND Quality of life after laparoscopic radical prostatectomy has been a discussed issue among patients. Nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy has been shown to be superior to non-nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy in terms of potency and continence. The authors have reported their experience of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and now developed our(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the feasibility of laparo-endoscopic single site (LESS) robotic radical prostatectomy performed in Asian man. MATERIAL AND METHOD A 71 year-old man with adenocarcinoma of prostate presented at Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok. Prostate-specific antigen level was 16.5 ng/ml and digital rectal examination approximately(More)
The most common disease ofappendix is acute appendicitis. There have been at least 20 case reports of metastasis-induced appendicitis in English literature. The authors reported a 62-year-old Thai man who underwent appendectomy due to classical symptoms and signs of acute appendicitis and was subsequently referred to Siriraj Hospital for proper management(More)
UNLABELLED Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is usually performed by transperitoneal approach. Patients may encounter; intraperitoneal organs injury, and prolonged ileus during recovery period. The authors firstly performed endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE) in Thailand, which is mimicking open radical prostatectomy, the gold standard(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of oncological and functional outcomes of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) during the first five years experience in Siriraj hospital. MATERIALS AND METHOD Between September 2004 and September 2009, the functional and oncological outcomes of 559 patients that underwent LRP were retrospectively evaluated. RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVES Several published series from Western countries have demonstrated that laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is a safe and feasible approach to the management of localized prostate cancer. The authors report the initial experience with the first 56 cases of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHOD Between June 2001 and November(More)
