Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy: oncological and functional results after 700 procedures.
The data demonstrate that EERPE can be performed with equal efficacy and results compared with laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy, while providing the ease and safety of a totally extraperitoneals approach, completely avoiding intraperitoneAL complications.

By avoiding entry into the peritoneal cavity and obviating intra-abdominal complications, such as bowel injury, ileus, or intestinal adhesions, the extraperitoneal endoscopic access provides a safe and minimally invasive approach to the prostate.
Efficacy and Cardiac Safety of Propiverine in Elderly Patients – A Double–Blind, Placebo–Controlled Clinical Study
A favourable benefit–risk ratio without the induction of any cardiac arrhythmia in the treatment of elderly patients suffering from urgency, urge incontinence or combined urge–stress incontinent is proven for propiverine.

Anatomy of the Lower Urinary Tract
Functional muscular units including sphincter systems and longitudinal urethral muscles are defined including spHincteric system of the urethra, comprising an inner smooth muscular layer and an outer striated muscular layer.

To compare the formation of gap junctions between detrusor smooth muscle cells in situ and the distribution of connexin (Cx)40, Cx43 and Cx45 expressions in bladder biopsies from a control group and from patients with urge symptoms, it is suggested that alterations of which may be involved in the causes of lower urinary tract symptoms are investigated.
Evolution of endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE)—technical improvements and development of a nerve-sparing, potency-preserving approach
Endoscopic extra peritoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE) is a further advancement of minimal invasive surgery as it overcomes the limitations of LRPE by the strictly extraperitoneal route of access combining the advantages of minimally invasive surgery with those of an extraPeritoneal procedure.

Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy: initial experience after 70 procedures.
Totally endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy represents a technical improvement of laparoscopic technique because it completely obviates intra-abdominal complications and combines the advantages of minimally invasive laparoscopy and the retropubic open approach.
