Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy: oncological and functional results after 700 procedures.
TLDR
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.
Alterations in connexin expression in the bladder of patients with urge symptoms
TLDR
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.
Efficacy and Cardiac Safety of Propiverine in Elderly Patients – A Double–Blind, Placebo–Controlled Clinical Study
TLDR
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.
Impact of previous surgery on endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy.
TLDR
Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy is feasible in patients with various previous abdominal surgical procedures and subjectively more demanding and challenging in patientsWith previous minimally invasive hernia repair with mesh placement made EERPE more demanding but was not a contraindication.
Anatomy of the Lower Urinary Tract
TLDR
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.
Evolution of endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE)—technical improvements and development of a nerve-sparing, potency-preserving approach
TLDR
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.
The endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE): technique and initial experience
TLDR
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.
Detrusor smooth muscle cells of the guinea-pig are functionally coupled via gap junctions in situ and in cell culture
TLDR
The use of smooth muscle cell cultures seems to be a feasible approach for studying coupling behaviour in vitro, as electron-microscopic examination of freeze-fracture specimens and ultrathin sections revealed that the dye-coupling was based on typical gap junction formation between the cultured smooth muscle cells.
The dispute about the external sphincter and the urogenital diaphragm.
TLDR
The musculus transversus perinei profundus or deep transverse perineal muscle, which is believed to constitute the major element of the urogenital diaphragm, does not exist.
Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy: initial experience after 70 procedures.
TLDR
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.
