Abstract

The objective of the present study was to evaluate perioperative complications between retropubic, endoscopic and robot-assisted radical prostatectomy on basis of a prospective maintained database using the Clavien-Dindo classification of complications. According to our results, implementation of the radical robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy shows a trend to a decrease of minor complications compared to retropubic and endoscopic radical prostatectomy. Major complications are comparable between all three procedures.
