How to improve functional outcome in robot-assisted radical prostatectomy

Video Session 03

  • Location:
    Room 1 (ICM, Level 0)
  • Chairs:
     B.H. Chung, Seoul (KR)
     B. Rocco, Milan (IT)
     R.F. Van Velthoven, Brussels (BE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    With regard to what is today considered as state-of-the-art in the fields of RARP, this session could emphasize some new technical contributions to improve continence and potency after surgery. Participants should be able to distinguish relevant contributions from anecdotial reports.

  • All presentations have a maximum lenght of 10 minutes, followed by 4 minutes of discussion.
