OBJECTIVES To describe a technique for facilitating the urethrovesical anastomosis at the time of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. METHODS Two 6-in. polyglycolic acid sutures (one dyed, one white) are tied together at their tail ends and delivered into the operative field by way of a 12-mm port. A running suture is completed from the 6:30 to the 12:00-o'clock position and from the 5:30 to the 12:00-o'clock position, at the end of which a single intracorporeal tie is completed.
