Dr. Moschovas discusses simultaneous hernia repair following RARP
In this podcast, Prof. Igor Tsaur (DE), chief editor of the UROONCO PCa editorial board talks with Dr. Marcio Covas Moschovas (US) about his abstract presentation at AUA2023, “Simultaneous hernia repair following robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is safe with low rates of mesh-related complications”.
Dr. Moschovas answers questions about the study design and the data presented. He compared 244 patients who underwent RARP with concomitant hernia repair (inguinal, umbilical, and ventral) and mesh placement, with 244 patients from 6,275 RARPs operated on the same period without hernia repair. He also shares details on what kind of mesh was used in different cases, such as 3D and pro-grip.
