Intraoperative ultrasonography with a surgeon-manipulated microtransducer during robotic radical prostatectomy.

Abstract

Intraoperative transrectal ultrasonography during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy has been reported to lead to a reduction in surgical margin rates. However, the use of a surgeon-controlled ultrasound probe that allows for precise manipulation and direct interpretation of the image by a console surgeon has yet to be studied. The aim of the present study… (More)
