Lastly, our results show that the nerve-sparing methods yielded similar rates of PSM when associated with ipsilateral and contralateral prostate cancer.

May 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two studies evaluating the sexual function in men with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) as well as post bilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy will be presented to the media at a special press conference during the 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA).
By comparison, 2 of the 15 women who underwent the nerve-sparing procedure experienced urinary retention on day 1, but all were better by day 3.
Although, on one hand, we know where the cavernosal nerves reside and what we can do to preserve them, outcomes of nerve-sparing operations are highly variable.
Some urologists welcomed the machine, saying even today's popular nerve-sparing prostate cancer surgery still leaves too many men impotent because doctors have no precise map of the microscopic nerves.
But unlike the radiation oncologists, many urologists predict that the use of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy will grow significantly in the near future, taking advantage of nerve-sparing techniques and robotic assistance to reinforce surgery as their first-line treatment of choice for patients with localized disease.
Nerve-sparing surgery was attempted in only one patient who had an acceptable Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM) score preoperatively.
Mount Sinai's surgeons are skilled in performing a catheterless, nerve-sparing robotic prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer.
Of patients undergoing unilateral or bilateral nerve-sparing procedures, 74% reported postoperative intercourse at 24 months, while mean sexual function subscale scores in patients with nerve sparing rose from 57% of baseline at 6 months to 78% at 2 years.
