Comparative trial assessing suture techniques and types of urinary catheters in vesicourethral anastomotic tensile strength in a porcine model.

Abstract

PURPOSE Vesicourethal anastomosis (VUA) during radical prostatectomy can be achieved using various suture plication techniques. Traditionally, an indwelling urinary catheter remains in-situ to facilitate the healing process of the reconstructed VUA. Compromise or rupture of this anastomosis may lead to acute urinary leak and subsequent urinoma or stricture… (More)
