Lymph node dissection during robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy: Comparison of lymph node yield and clinical outcomes when including common iliac nodes with standard template dissection
Lymph Node Excision
LN yield increased and additional sites of LN metastases were identified during full-template pelvic LND during RALP. This modification was not associated with an increased rate of complications. Derived benefits of including additional nodal dissection and the effect on staging accuracy remain to be determined.
