BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Creation of an optimally apposed, tension-free, well-supported vesicourethral anastomosis remains the cornerstone for anastomotic healing after radical prostatectomy. We report the effect of three techniques of bladder neck reconstruction during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy on anastomotic leak, stricture formation, and continence recovery. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2005 to September 2009, 1900 consecutive patients underwent robotic-assisted… CONTINUE READING
