ConclusionThere has been a recent resurgence on the interest of radical perineal prostatectomy for the treatment of localized PCa driven by the advent of new robotic surgical technologies into the field. Future studies are needed to better determine the learning curve of the perineal approach and its current role in the treatment of prostate cancer.

AbstractBackgroundThe rehabilitation of post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence has traditionally focused on pelvic floor strengthening exercise. The goal of this study was to determine whether an individualized pelvic physical therapy (PT) program aimed at normalizing both underactive and overactive pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) can result in improvement in post-prostatectomy stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic pain.MethodsA retrospective chart review of 136 patients with post-prostatectomy SUI and treated with pelvic PT. Patients were identified as having either underactive, overactive, or mixed-type PFD and tr...

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...

Purpose of review Despite increasing use of robotic surgery for radical prostatectomy, the benefit of robotic over open approach on different postoperative outcomes is still under debate. The present review aimed to provide a framework on the latest evidences on outcomes of prostate cancer (PCa) patients treated with robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) vs. open radical prostatectomy (ORP). Specifically, we focused on postoperative complications, urinary continence and erectile function recovery, PCa recurrence and PCa-related mortality. Recent findings Regarding perioperative outcomes, recent studies confirmed...
