OBJECTIVE To analyze the perioperative safety and outcomes of the first 100 robotic-assisted radical prostatectomies (RARPs) performed by a resident trained surgeon entering directly into practice. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Following a mentorship-based urology residency training program, the perioperative safety and outcomes of 100 consecutive RARPs were analyzed. Intraoperative complications, surgical pathology results, hospital course, and catheter removal times were all monitored. Urinary… CONTINUE READING
