V6-12: Very Early Recovery of Urinary Continence after Robotic Radical Prostatectomy: Initial Report of Hammock Stitch Technique

Video

Introductions and Objectives
Time to recovery of continence after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) remains the most bothersome complaint by patients. Many techniques have been described to shorten recovery to continence, none have thus far been validated. We propose a technique that creates a “hammock” around the urethra at the time of vesico-urethral anastomosis. We believe that this may lead to very early (
