  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Radical prostatectomy requires both cancer-negative margin and urinary continence without major injury of the urethral sphincter. However, the prostate is the organ jointed to the bladder and urethra in the deepestpo-sition in the pelvis. This anatomical characteristics makes radical prostatectomy difficult. While laparoscopy might help to perform radical prostatectomy in the deepest narrow space under magnified view, understanding of the exact anatomy, selection of the proper instruments and enough training of each procedure are required to do it safely and promptly.
