New findings from a prospective, multicentre, randomised trial demonstrated improved continence for patients undergoing robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (R-LRPE) as compared with conventional laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRPE).
Prof. Jens-Uwe Stolzenburg (University of Leipzig, Germany) presented the results of the LAP-01 study, the first trial that aimed to generate conclusive data supporting improved continence after R-LRPE compared with LRPE in a prospective setting in 4 German centres (Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf, University Hospital Heidelberg, Klinikum Dortmund, Universitätsklinikum Leipzig) .
Patients (at data cut-off, n=713) were randomised 3:1 to either R-LRPE (n=527) or conventional LRPE (n=186); patients were blinded to their arm allocation until month 3. The primary endpoint of the study was continence restoration at month 3, as defined by not requiring a p...
