Impact of Catheter Size on Peri-Operative Pain After Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy

2019-09-26 05:42:35 | BioPortfolio


This study is designed to assess the effect of catheter size on postoperative catheter pain, urinary continence, urinary flow rates, post void residuals, International Prostate Symptom Scores (IPSS), and Quality of Life (QoL) score, as well as long term complications after robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.


Subjects identified to receive a robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.were randomized to either a 16 French or 20 French catheter at the completion of the prostatectomy. All prostatectomies were performed by one of three surgeons at the investigator's institution. Preoperative demographics and operative data were recorded for each group. Catheters remained in place for 7-14 days. Subjects were asked on postoperative day 7 to report their catheter-related pain and amount of opioid medication used. Urinary symptoms and quality of life scores and pads per day were recorded at 6 weeks and 12 weeks post-operatively, Urinary flow rate and post void residual were recorded at 12 weeks postoperatively.

Employment or passage of a catheter into the URINARY BLADDER (urethral c.) or kidney (ureteral c.) for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.

One of the Indian Ocean Islands off the southeast coast of Africa. Its capital is Antananarivo. It was formerly called the Malagasy Republic. Discovered by the Portuguese in 1500, its history has been tied predominantly to the French, becoming a French protectorate in 1882, a French colony in 1896, and a territory within the French union in 1946. The Malagasy Republic was established in the French Community in 1958 but it achieved independence in 1960. Its name was changed to Madagascar in 1975.

Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).
