Introduction & Objective :

Robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) requires a steep Trendelenburg position, which may result in increased intraocular pressure (IOP). Recent studies have reported that high IOP can cause visual loss by ischemic optic neuropathy. We aimed to compare the impacts of 25° and 15° Trendelenburg positions (TP) on IOP changes during RALP.


Methods :

After institute ethics committee approval and written informed consent, 31 patients with prostate cancer who received RALP were included in this non-randomized prospective study. Twenty-six patients received RALP in standard 25° TP using intraperitoneal approach (IA) and five patients received RALP in gentle 15° TP using extraperitoneal approach (EA). In addition to the perioperative parameters, IOP was measured at 9 discrete time points as follows: at the start of operation (S1), at the initiation of pneumoperitoneum (S2), at the start of TP (H1), 1 h after TP (H2), 2 h after TP (H3), when resection of Santorini’s plexus (H4), before returning of the supine position (SP) (H5), 5 min after SP (S3), 10 min after SP (S4). The IOP was compared between S1 and other time points and also compared between IA and EA.


Results :

IOP significantly increased at H1-H5 but immediately decreased after returning to the supine position in both groups. On the other hand, IOP of EA at H1-5 were significantly lower than those of TA. Furthermore, IOP change between S1 and H5 correlated significantly with age (r = −0.26), time of TP (r = 0.22) and angle of TP (25° vs 15°, r = −0.51). Meanwhile, none of the patients complained of visual impairment in the present study.


Conclusions : RALP in gentle 15° TP significantly attenuated the elevation of IOP during head down position in comparison with RALP in 25° TP. Although further evaluation is required in patient with glaucoma, RALP in gentle 15° TP might expand indication for RALP to the patient with glaucoma.
