From May 2011 to September 2016, Dr. Fay and team evaluated 129 consecutive men who underwent RSP. For this assessment, demographics, pathology, perioperative complication, and functional outcomes were assessed.
For these 129 patients median preoperative IPSS was 27, PVR was 247.5ml, and Qmax was 8ml/s. There were no intraoperative complications found in all patients. None of the cases had to convert to open surgery and only one patient required blood transfusion. Median postoperative IPSS was 7.5, PVR was 6 and Qmax was 19.5.
Dr. Fay concluded that robotic simple prostatectomy is a safe and effective surgical treatment for BPH. He added that functional outcomes were excellent and that his team’s assessment showed statically significant improvements in IPSS,Qmax, and PVR.
