Interplay of Various Factors Impacts Return of Continence After RARP: Database Analysis
Interplay of Various Factors Impacts Return of Continence After Robot Assisted Radical Prostatectomy: Analysis of a Prospectively Maintained Database
This is a lecture presented to the Robotic Surgeons Council of India (RSC) by Vattikuti Fellow Dr. Ashwin Mallya. Dr. Rajesh Ahlawat is the Fellowship Director. Portions of this research was performed at Fortis Escorts Kidney & Urology Institute, then moved to Medant, The Medicity.
“There cannot be a ‘One size fits all’ approach,” Dr. Mallya tells the RSC in regards to planning a procedure. “Each patient, each disease, and each anatomy is Unique.” He outlines steps surgeons need to take as they decide the course of each surgery. Neurovascular bundle preservation is a goal, because it leads to better continence outcomes, as does ‘ASURE,’ Anterior fascial SUpport REconstruction, as he he describes to the RSC.
Lecture, with PPT’s, diagrams, photos and robotic surgery video clips, 14:42.
