was performed according to the conventional technique with 6 transperitoneal trocars.
We have expanded this evaluation to examine in detail the quality of nucleic acids obtained from RALP
In September 2012 a comparative results study of radical prostatectomy verses External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) demonstrated an increased survival rate of 40 and 65 percent with RALP
Many studies have shown that RALP
is feasible with limited blood loss, favourable complication rates, and short hospital times.
At 12 months, 97% of RALP
patients had urinary continence compared with 88% of radical prostatectomy patients (p = 0.
For example, three patients in the RALP
group developed hernias, compared with none in the RRP group, and five patients (6.
Such metastases are rarely reported following ePLND with or without RALP
The study included 953 consecutive prostate cancer treatment patients with RALP
performed by Dr.
Samadi explains the clarity and reassurance that come from RALP
Samadi in the July issue of the Journal of Endourology ("Improvements in Robot-Assisted Prostatectomy: The Effect of Surgeon Experience and Technical Changes on Oncologic and Functional Outcomes"), "increased surgeon experience with RALP
results in improvements in oncologic and functional outcomes.
Multiple prospective observational studies, as well as population-based evaluations of outcomes across surgical approaches, hint at superior perioperative outcomes for RALP
The authors concluded that the trifecta outcome rates for RALP
were comparable to open surgery, but outcome rates vary significantly depending on the tools used for continence and potency evaluation.
