The prevalence of urinary incontinence after Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy ranged from 4% to 31%. These are generally influenced by preoperative patient characteristics, surgeon experience, surgical technique, and methods used to collect and report data. Robotic technology combining optical magnification, 3 D vision, and instruments with 7̊ of freedom allows surgeons to perform meticulous, precise, and accurate movements. They help to preserve the vital anatomic structures for urinary continence and potency and to minimize perioperative complications. Learn more about this case in this expert speaker presentation designed by Medvarsity and Dosily.
