Technical specificities of radical prostatectomy

The article analyzes various technical aspects of radical prostatectomy that remains the «golden standard» with respect of both oncological and functional outcomes of treatment of prostate cancer. At present, radical prostatectomy can be performed with perineal, retropubic approach, and it can also be laparoscopic and robotic-assisted. Apparently, each of
approaches has its indications and contraindications, but there are certain technical aspects referring, for example, to the technique of separation of the prostate, performance of the vesicourethral anastomosis, etc. that need careful consideration for choosing one of them.

Key words: virtual planning, navigation, three-dimensional printed models, three-dimensional technologies.
