Lastly, a binomial logistic model was used to assess the impact of a number of patient factors (age, BMI, D'Amico risk, prostate volume and presence of median lobe) on the likelihood of individual RARP
steps to be prolonged [greater than or equal to] 75th percentile.
Men were included in our study if they were treated with ORP or RARP
In contrast, the time for RARP
plus ePLND showed a progressive decrease with an increase in the surgeon's experience (p = 0.
On univariable analysis, patient and operative characteristics associated with continence 1 month following RARP
were younger age (odds ratio [OR] 0.
Despite global acceptance, RARP
is not widely disseminated in current Canadian urological practice.
During the study period, 142 (42%) out of 335 patients underwent RARP
and 192 (57%) underwent ORP.
Extrapolating upon the experience of Zorn and Sammon, as well as our own with use of V-loc suture for RARP
, we investigated its applicability for performing the urethro-intestinal anastomosis in orthotopic neobladder construction during RARC.
The last 5 days comprised of performing RARP
as the console surgeon with the preceptor as the assistant.
Between April 2005 and October 2010, 309 consecutive patients underwent RARP
at our institution.
was performed by transperitoneal and antegrade approach.
12] Since the initial porcine study by Weld and colleagues, which assessed self-anchoring suture (SAS) material for urinary tract reconstruction, two recent publications have emerged assessing barbed suture for RARP
VUA demonstrating feasibility and increased efficiency.
Similar findings, with regards to increased operative times for RARP
in obese patients, have been found in other studies,[sup.
