Abstract

BACKGROUND: Prostate pedicle management is a crucial step during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). Wide excision of prostate pedicle may be required to avoid positive surgical margins (PSMs) whereas preservation of ncurovascular bundles requires resection close on the prostate. We studied Endo GIATM stapling of prostate pedicle during RARP.
