The Experience of Robotic Camera Holder During Laparoscopic Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy

by Branimir Penev

Abstract: Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) is a challenging procedure for both the surgeon and the assistant(s). Frequently only one assistant is available who has to manipulate the camera and also assist with traction and/or suction. This may lead to poor image quality making the procedure more difficult for the surgeon. Previous robotic camera holders were bulky and expensive. We report on the impact of a new robotic camera holder on the outcome of extraperitoneal laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.
