OBJECTIVE To evaluate the initial functional and oncologic results of 184 robot-assisted radical prostatectomies performed at our hospital. METHODS A retrospective study was made of the first 184 consecutive robot-assisted radical prostatectomies performed at our hospital between February 2003 and December 2005. The procedures were performed by two(More)
Robot-assisted procedures are slowly invading minimally invasive urologic surgery. When superior visibility, meticulous dissection, or complex reconstruction is needed, robotic surgery may offer benefits over conventional laparoscopy. We report the use of the da Vinci robotic system for laparoscopic psoas hitch-supported ureteral reimplantation. We believe(More)
During recent years many urologists have been convinced of the advantages of robot-assisted, minimally invasive urological procedures. Because microscope-assisted vasovasostomy is a rather uncommon procedure, most urologists lack microsurgical experience. Use of the da Vinci robotic system (Intuitive Surgical, Mountain View, CA, USA) virtually eliminates(More)
A 54-year-old man underwent a robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) because of prostate cancer. During surgery an open silicone drain was placed in the abdominal cavity. After a few days we tried to remove the drain, however it was stuck to a bloodclot and to a tissue structure protruding from the abdominal cavity. This proved to be the appendix(More)
