Retrograde Versus Antegrade Nerve Sparing During Robot-assisted Radical Prostatectomy- Which Is Better for Achieving Early Functional Recovery


From the EAU Surgery in Motion series, Vattikuti Foundation partner surgeons Vipul Patel and Ananthkrishnan Sivaraman team up with colleagues in this video which accompanies a published European Urology article. They discuss the anatomy of neurovascular bundles, their different techniques of retrograde and antegrade nerve sparing and study the functional recovery of both types of nerve sparing procedures.
Narrated, with anatomic diagrams, robotic surgery videos and PowerPoints listing and graphing the key items. 12:23.
