Abstract

With the resurgent interest in radical perineal prostatectomy, a variety of enhancements have been made to the procedure. We describe herein the use of a retractor blade that allows full mobilization of the seminal vesicles and vasa prior to prostatic apical dissection, thus facilitating bladder neck-sparing radical prostatectomy. This retractor system dramatically improves visualization of the seminal vesicles and prostatic pedicles, allowing a single surgeon to perform this procedure easily.
