Two different techniques of intra-fascial prostate cancer treatment are explained step-by-step in RARP. Focus on potency recovery following radical prostatectomy remains a challenge due to its multifactorial etiology, as well as venous oozing may occur especially in intrafascial nerve sparing technique. TachoSil® is placed before posterior reconstruction to control venous oozing and use of Quill® barbed sutures for preparation of the urethro-vesical anastomosis in order to shorten the operation time and to avoid leakage.
