The primary treatment of this type of cancer is radical prostatectomy, which has shown good oncological results. Radical prostatectomy (open, laparoscopic or robotic) has high success and low morbidity rates in patients with localized prostate cancer. The life expectancy is>10 years after radical prostatectomy. Studies have shown that ~20%-30% of the patients who have undergone radical prostatectomy can develop biochemical...

Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP) is one of the treatment options for localized prostate cancer, with an excellent disease control rate. However, these patients can experience late disease recurrence with metastatic dissemination. Peritoneal metastases are an uncommon recurrence site. Here, we discuss three cases of peritoneal metastases following RALRP and the mechanisms of peritoneal invasion. Through a literature review and our case reports, we postulate the existence of two distinct mechanisms of peritoneal invasion: one being iatrogenic, following a laparoscopic surgery with a well differentiat...

Is widespread adoption of surgical robots around the corner? The question is certainly timely given the recent developments in the sector. To name a few, in mid-September, CMR announced it raised $243 million in a Series C round, while reaching unicorn status. Two weeks later, Medtronic was unveiling Hugo to investors, its long-awaited robotic surgery system. Meanwhile, Verb Surgical, the joint venture between Johnson &Johnson and Verily, took on a new CEO ahead of market launch. As the range of offerings continue to expand, should we expect to see surgical robots in every OR soon? The answer is not quite yet. On one h...

ConclusionsThe reconstruction of the rhabdosphincter is the only technique that has shown improved functional results through randomized trials. The current evidence is limited and heterogenous, and more studies with consistent criteria are needed in order to establish a standard surgical technique.ResumenContexto y objetivoLa incontinencia urinaria es el efecto secundario con mayor impacto en la calidad de vida después de la prostatectomía radical. El objetivo de nuestro artículo es revisar la evidencia científica actual sobre las variaciones quirúrgicas descritas para preservar la conti...
