The TDAP flap, on the other hand, requires intraoperative position changes and separate extirpative
and reconstructive stages, which is a disadvantage.
surgical management was the main treatment modality to reduce mortality in patients with renal TB prior to the discovery of anti-tuberculous medications.
The average operating time, including the extirpative
procedure, was 385 minutes.
A single surgeon performed the extirpative
portion and one of two fellowship-trained reconstructive surgeons performed the urinary diversion extracorporally.
Complex reconstructive and extirpative
urologic procedures have been performed using LESS.
Synchronous upper and lower urinary tract tumours requiring extirpative
surgery are not uncommon.
portion of the procedure, including the radical cystectomy and an extended pelvic lymph node dissection, is performed robotically.
We looked at the trend in ablative procedures as compared to extirpative
procedures by state (Fig.
Morbidities include urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction; these quality of life issues can curtail the patient's decision to choose extirpative
surgery as primary treatment and thus delay definitive therapy.
The main advantage of ablative techniques would be to offer treatment to patients who are otherwise not candidates for invasive extirpative
