A Case of Well Leg Compartment Syndrome After Robot-assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy:With Review.

J Med Invest 2022 ;69(1.2):145-147

Department of Urology, Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, Japan.

Robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) for prostate cancer was introduced in 2000 and rapidly gained popularity. The Da Vinci Surgical System? can ensure improved local control of cancer and fewer perioperative complications. However, RALP is performed in the steep-Trendelenburg position (a combination of lithotomy and head-down tilt position/Lloyd-Davies position) to obtain a good surgical view, and as a result, well leg compartment syndrome (WLCS) can become a serious complication of RALP.

The diffusion of robotic surgery: Examining technology use in the English NHS.

Health Policy 2022 Apr 27;126(4):325-336. Epub 2022 Feb 27.

Department of Economics, City, University of London, Northampton Square, EC1V 0HB London, UK; Department of Health Policy, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, WC2A 2AE London, UK; Visiting Research Fellow, Office of Health Economics, 105 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QT, UK.

This paper examines the adoption and diffusion of medical technology as associated with the dramatic recent increase in the surgical use of robots. We consider specifically the sequential adoption and diffusion patterns of three interrelated surgical technologies within a single healthcare system (the English NHS): robotic, laparoscopic and open radical prostatectomy. Robotic and laparoscopic techniques are minimally invasive procedures with similar patient benefits, but the newer robotic technique requires a high initial investment cost to purchase the robot and carries high maintenance costs over time.

World J Urol 2022 Jun 12;40(6):1427-1436. Epub 2022 Mar 12.

Department of Urology, Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, Virginia Mason Hospital and Seattle Medical Center, 1100 Ninth Ave., Seattle, WA, USA.

Purpose: To compare 5-year health-related quality of life (HRQoL) outcomes between prostate cancer (CaP) patients who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) versus open radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) and assess for racial disparities between Caucasian American (CA) and African American (AA) men undergoing surgery.
