Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

The modern perineal approach to radical prostatectomy uses either nerve-sparing or extended radical modifications on each side. These modifications add optimal potency preservation and optimal cancer control to the benefits of a minimally invasive approach.

TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS:

Because of space constraints, this description emphasizes the anatomy and technique of the nerve-sparing and extended radical modifications.

CONCLUSIONS:

The modern perineal approach provides all the advantages of surgical removal of the cancerous prostate with the least morbidity.
