BACKGROUND Comparative studies suggest functional and perioperative superiority of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) over open radical prostatectomy (ORP). OBJECTIVE To determine whether high-volume experienced open surgeons can improve their functional and oncologic outcomes with RARP and, if so, how many cases are required to surpass ORP(More)
This is the first systematic investigation of the very long-term effects of severe closed head injury (CHI) on objective measures of memory, and the first to employ both a normal control group and an 'other injury' control group consisting of spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. The CHI group displayed significantly poorer performance on every memory measure,(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the template-guided transperineal prostate biopsy (TPB) outcomes for patients of two urologists from a single institution. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a prospective study of 409 consecutive men who underwent TPB between December 2006 and June 2008 in a tertiary referral centre using a standardized 14-region technique. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To critically analyse the learning curve for one experienced open surgeon converting to robotic surgery for radical prostatectomy (RP). PATIENTS AND METHODS From February 2006 to December 2008, 502 patients had retropubic RP (RRP) while concurrently 212 had robot-assisted laparoscopic RP (RALP) by one urologist. We prospectively compared the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess, in men undergoing active surveillance (AS) for low-risk prostate cancer, whether saturation or transperineal biopsy altered oncological outcomes, compared with standard transrectal biopsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from two cohorts with localised prostate cancer (1998-2012) undergoing(More)
OBJECTIVE • To compare long-term biochemical control of high-risk prostate cancer in those men receiving high-dose rate brachytherapy (HDRB) and radical prostatectomy (RP). PATIENTS AND METHODS • The 10-year biochemical freedom from relapse (BFR) was calculated for 243 patients who underwent either RP or combined therapy with HDRB + external beam(More)
OBJECTIVE •  To examine whether nerve-sparing surgery (NSS) is a risk factor for positive surgical margins (PSMs) in patients with either organ-confined prostate cancer or extracapsular extension (ECE). PATIENTS AND METHODS •  Clinicopathological outcome data on 945 consecutive patients treated with radical prostatectomy (RP) were prospectively collected.(More)
Early return of continence forms an important component of quality of life for patients after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RALP). Here we describe the steps of bladder neck imbrication and vesico-urethral anastomosis improving early continence after RALP. Between April 2008 and July 2009, 202 consecutive patients underwent RALP for clinically(More)
