Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Prostate is a small gland of the genitourinary male system which is located just inferior to the urinary bladder. Prostate produces the spermatic fluid which provides mobility to the sperm during ejaculation. The normal prostate weights 15-20gr approximately. The prostate gland is afflicted with either benign or malignant neoplasms. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is a common situation in men and is age-related (80% in men over 80years).

BPH can cause severe prostatic symptoms as well as obstructive voiding symptoms in many patients. Those symptoms are due to prostatic gland enlargement, leading to a reduced urine flow from the prostatic urethra.

Robotic surgery has become a reality since 2000, due to advances in robotic technology and its application in medicine. Originally the prospective involved the feasibility of surgical interventions within large distances (telesurgery). US space and military programs, intensified research in order to provide surgery from earth to astronauts, or to provide surgical intervention to injured soldiers in the line of duty, by qualified specialists from a remote medical center. In 2001, J. Marescaux, was the first surgeon to perform a minimally invasive cholecystectomy to a patient in Strasbourg- France, while he was in New York (Lindberg operation). In these endeavors, robotic surgery seemed to have even more advantages, overcoming the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery, principally because the robotic instruments are articulated with far greater maneuverability and three-dimensional vision allowing more accurate perception of the surgical field.
