To characterize determinants of 4-, 12-, and 24-month urinary control after robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). Adjusted comparative study using prospectively collected, patient self-reported urinary control for 602 consecutive RALPs. Urinary control defined as: (1) EPIC urinary function (UF) scored from 0 to 100 and (2) continence (zero pads per day). Both UF (62.8 vs. 42.4, P < 0.001) and continence rates (47.2 vs. 26.7%, P = 0.043) were better for bilateral nerve-sparing (BNS… CONTINUE READING
