Open Anterograde Anatomic Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy Technique R2PA2

This video describes step by step a new surgical technique for performing “Open Anterograde Anatomic Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy” (R2PA2) for the treatment of prostate cancer in the same way as performed by the robot, without the need for using the robotic platform, video or any equipment other than those used in the conventional open surgery described by Patrick Walsh in 1983. This prospective and randomized study is registered in the ClinicalTrials.gov identifier number: NCT02687308, and the full description of this technique was published in: Fabricio et al., Surgery Curr Res 2017, 7:5
