Prostatectomie radicale : voie ouverte ou «mini-invasive» ? Expérience en chirurgie ouverte et point de vue

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2005, vol. 1, no. 42, p. 2748-54
Abstract Radical prostatectomy remains the gold standard for treatment of localised prostate cancer. Standardisation of the open retro-pubic anatomic prostatectomy by P Walsh allows skilled but not expert surgeons to achieve a high standard of performance. Learning curve is short with this technic, with minor morbidity. Rates of incontinence are low and impotency is now rather uncommon in the younger patient while oncological control is optimal for histologicaly organ confined cancer. "Mini invasive technics", laparoscopy and robot-assisted laparoscopy, have a longer learning curve, including a higher rate of complications that are unusual with open surgery. Operating time remains longer, costs are superior to the open technic and oncological control is not yet clearly validated while rates of classical late complications are not lower. Consequently, most urologist still prefer the open approach
