Abstract

A 68-year-old man with prostate cancer, T1cN0M0, was treated with laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) assisted by the ZEUS robotic system. The ZEUS system was utilized only for vesico-urethral anastomosis, one of the most difficult procedures to perform during LRP. We could complete the vesico-urethral anastomosis using the ZEUS system for 100 min without any intraoperative complications. The urethral catheter was removed 7 days after operation. To our knowledge, this is the initial case of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy using the ZEUS system.
