MP15-4 - Preservation of the urethra during transperitoneal Robot-Assisted simple prostatectomy: a new ejaculation sparing approach

Saturday, September 22

Location: Room 242B

Introduction & Objective :

Recently, robotic assisted simple prostatectomy (RASP) has become a treatment option for prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Robotic Centres. In order to further reduce the invasiveness of this procedure, we use a “urethral-sparing approach” during the dissection of the adenoma. We present the results of our transperitoneal robotic assisted “urethral sparing” simple prostatectomy, that we named “pure” adenomectomy. 


Methods :

From August 2017, patients with indications to BPH surgery, prostate volume >100cc, and no significant median lobe at preoperative US were enrolled in the study.


Demographic and perioperative variables, early (within 30 days) functional results were recorded and analysed.  Early Complications ( 15 mL/s, and no perioperative complications) was evaluated at 1 month time point.

Surgical technique. After the prostate gland is prepared, a transversal, anterolateral incision is made halfway between the Dorsal Venous Complex (DVC) and the bladder neck. The cleavage plane between the surgical capsule and the adenoma is identified anteriorly and gently dissected at the level of prostate apex bilaterally.  Once the left lobe is mobilized a median longitudinal incision is made at the level of anterior commissure. The urethra is medialized by suction device and gently dissected from the left lobe. At the end of this step the left lobe is removed. The procedure is repeated for the right lobe. Thus the urethra is spared inside the prostatic lodge. Prostatic capsule is then barbed sutured.


Results :

Twenty-four patients were enrolled: mean age was 68 years, mean prostate volume was 176 cc, 8 patients had urethral catheter due to urinary retention. For the other 16 patients, mean IPSS score was 22 and mean Qmax was 9 ml/sec. Eight patients were sexually active before surgery.


All the patients were treated with pure adenomectomy: mean operative time was 100 minutes; blood losses were 400 mL. No intraoperative complications occurred. Bladder irrigation was stopped 24 hours after surgery in all the cases. Catheterization time and hospital stay were 4 and 6 days, respectively. Mean specimen weight was 80 grams.


No complications were recorded during follow up and the “trifecta outcome” was achieved in all patients at 30 days time point. All sexually active patients resumed their activity within 2 weeks after surgery with ejaculation maintained in all patients. 


Conclusions :

Our robot-assisted “pure” adenomectomy seems to be safe in the treatment of large prostatic adenoma; moreover it does not seem to affect sexual function and ejaculation.
