INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES: We have previously published our work identifying anatomical landmarks for grading of nerve sparing. We now demonstrate further nuances in nerve preservation during RARP. MATERIAL & METHODS: The present study is a combination of a single surgeon experience after 5000 patients and a compilation of videos detailing some possible scenarios that surgeons might face when performing nerve sparing. RESULTS: Case 1: 55 year old man with PSA of 5, SHIM score 25, DRE reveals T1c with and low volume disease. Complete bilateral nerve sparing is performed. Case 2: 60 year old man with SHIM score of 25, PSA of 7.2, and normal DRE. During the dissection of NVB, the surgeon initially misses the correct plane then correcting it to proceed more medially and preserve the capsular artery, thereby achieving a full nerve spare. Case 3: is a 47 year old man with a SHIM score of 25, and an intermediate risk grade cancer having a partial nerve sparing. In Case four, we show you the technique to protect the base during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. All patients had negative surgical margins. CONCLUSIONS: Case 1: 55 year old man with PSA of 5, SHIM score 25, DRE reveals T1c with and low volume disease. Complete bilateral nerve sparing is performed.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES: We have previously published our work identifying anatomical landmarks for grading of nerve sparing. We now demonstrate further nuances in nerve preservation during RARP. MATERIAL & METHODS: The present study is a combination of a single surgeon experience after 5000 patients and a compilation of videos detailing some possible scenarios that surgeons might face when performing nerve sparing. RESULTS: Case 1: 55 year old man with PSA of 5, SHIM score 25, DRE reveals T1c with and low volume disease. Complete bilateral nerve sparing is performed. Case 2: 60 year old man with SHIM score of 25, PSA of 7.2, and normal DRE. During the dissection of NVB, the surgeon initially misses the correct plane then correcting it to proceed more medially and preserve the capsular artery, thereby achieving a full nerve spare. Case 3: is a 47 year old man with a SHIM score of 25, and an intermediate risk grade cancer having a partial nerve sparing. In Case four, we show you the technique to protect the base during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. All patients had negative surgical margins. CONCLUSIONS: Case 1: 55 year old man with PSA of 5, SHIM score 25, DRE reveals T1c with and low volume disease. Complete bilateral nerve sparing is performed. Case 2: 60 year old man with SHIM score of 25, PSA of 7.2, and normal DRE.
