BACKGROUND: Men with high serum prostate specific antigen usually undergo transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (TRUS-biopsy). TRUS-biopsy can cause side-effects including bleeding, pain, and infection. Multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (MP-MRI) used as a triage test might allow men to avoid unnecessary TRUS-biopsy and improve diagnostic accuracy.

Background from the abstract: The effect of the systemic lidocaine on postoperative recovery has not been definitively investigated despite its analgesic efficacy after surgery. The aim of this randomized, double-blinded, controlled study was to evaluate the effect of intravenously administered lidocaine on the quality of recovery and on acute and chronic postoperative pain after robot-assisted thyroidectomy.

Various robotic procedures
Background Robotic surgery has been in existence for 30 years. This study aimed to evaluate the overall perioperative outcomes of robotic surgery compared with open surgery (OS) and conventional minimally invasive surgery (MIS) across various surgical procedures.

Review: This insightful commentary was first published in the BJUI, 29 May, 2016, from robotic surgeons from our partner hospital: Urology Centre, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. The authors make a strong case for why using a robot may be substantially better for the surgeon and patient than open or even laparoscopic procedures. In the words of the authors: "If you are one of the many departments performing LRN with a dormant robotic system sitting in the corner of room, we urge you to use it." We thank the authors for "tweeting" about it recently. The whole commentary is available from the attached link or copy & paste this: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/bju.13509/full

Robot Assisted Radical Cystectomy
Twenty Four (24) ERUS-affiliated surgeons have collaborated to develop guidelines to provide a European Association of Urology (EAU) Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) policy on ERPs to guide standardised perioperative management of Robot Assisted Radical Cystectomy patients. The abstract review may be found here: Eur Urol. 2016 May 24. pii: S0302-2838(16)30184-1. doi: 10.1016/j.eururo.2016.05.020.We are proud to report that some of the authors listed are Vattikuti Foundation Partner Surgeons.
