Abstract: Major previous abdominal surgery involving more than one abdominal quadrant may be considered a relative contraindication to robotic assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) due to the potential increased risk of adhesions, bowel injuries, and is often associated with longer operating time and increased blood loss. We describe the use of a mini-laparotomy to allow safe port placement with extensive open and robotic adhesiolysis at the time of RARP with an excellent post-operative recovery, good oncologic and functional outcomes.
