PURPOSE We prospectively evaluated the morbidity, and minor and major complications of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy performed by a single surgical team. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 28, 1998 and February 28, 2001, 567 patients 42 to 77 years old (mean age plus or minus standard deviation 63.5 +/- 6) with clinically localized prostate cancer(More)
PURPOSE We performed a prospective oncological evaluation of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in regard to local tumor control and biochemical recurrence. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 1998 and March 2002, 1,000 consecutive patients with a mean age +/- SD of 63 +/- 6.2 years and clinically localized prostate cancer underwent laparoscopic radical(More)
PURPOSE To minimize the risk of incontinence and impotence without compromising oncological outcome, we performed prostate sparing surgery during radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Since 1992, 100 patients with a mean age of 64 years (range 48 to 82) underwent cystectomy for bladder transitional cell carcinoma with prostate(More)
PURPOSE With our extensive experience of transperitoneal laparoscopic prostatectomy, we evaluated the advantages and disadvantages of the extraperitoneal approach by comparing 2 consecutive series of each procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed 200 consecutive procedures performed by 2 surgeons. A total of 100 transperitoneal procedures (designated(More)
PURPOSE Laparoscopic simple prostatectomy has recently been developed to remove large prostatic adenomas causing bladder outflow obstruction. To our knowledge the advantages of the laparoscopic vs the standard open approach to this procedure remain undefined. We compared laparoscopic and open simple prostatectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Perioperative data(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are at risk of developing renal tumours. OBJECTIVE Compare clinical, pathologic, and outcome features of renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) in ESRD patients and in patients from the general population. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Twenty-four French university departments of urology participated in(More)
PURPOSE We performed a nonrandomized retrospective comparison of 2 techniques for laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, that is without and with clamping the renal vessels. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between December 1997 and February 2002, 28 consecutive patients underwent transperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for renal tumor. In group 1 (12 patients)(More)
PURPOSE We studied the feasibility of combined treatment with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and transurethral resection or incision of the prostate for localized prostate cancer to decrease the risk of posttreatment prolonged urinary retention. MATERIALS AND METHODS Included in this feasibility study were 30 patients fulfilling certain(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the feasibility of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for recurrence after irradiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Since 2000, 7 patients with biological failure after irradiation (5 external beam radiation and 2 brachytherapy), and no metastasis on computerized tomography and bone scan underwent a transperitoneal laparoscopic radical(More)
