Robotic-assisted Radical Prostatectomy in Men ≥75Years of Age. Surgical, Oncological and Functional Outcomes
Anticancer Research, 05/21/2012
Labanaris AP et al. – The findings suggest that robot–assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) in patients ≥75years of age is a safe surgical procedure with limited complications, excellent oncologic and continence outcomes as well as acceptable potency outcomes. Nevertheless, RARP should be limited to a selected cohort of patients with a good overal health status and an individual life expectancy of more than 10years in order for the oncological advantages of surgery to be achieved.
