Retzius-Sparing Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy (RARP): Rationale, Selection & Technique – Summary:
Daniel C. Parker, MD, an assistant professor of urology at the University of Oklahoma, discusses the functional outcomes of the Retzius-sparing robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RARP) as compared to a traditional RARP. He goes on to describe the differences in postoperative continence and erectile disruption between the two approaches, how to select patients who may be candidates for a Retzius-sparing approach, as well as several randomized studies that describe any oncological and functional outcome differences between the two approaches.
