International Robotic Urology Symposium Reports on Benefits of Cooling During Robotic-Assisted Prostate Surgery and Introduces InnerCool's New Investigational UroCool System
Date:1/14/2009

control is the most bothersome patient-reported side effect of prostate surgery. In addition to incontinence, many men experience some degree of erectile dysfunction following radical prostatectomy, depending on a number of factors including how potent the patient was prior to surgery, patient age, tumor stage, and how the neurovascular bundles were preserved during surgery. This side-effect is a frustrating and inconvenient experience. In many cases, the recovery of sexual function can take up to 24 months.

Additional Targeted Tissue Cooling

In addition to use in radical prostatectomies, targeted tissue cooling as developed for the UroCool catheter has a number of potential future clinical applications for tissue cooling in the pelvic region. These include other urological procedures such as radical cystectomy, a common procedure used to treat bladder cancer that has spread into the bladder wall. There are also a number of gynecological and colorectal cooling opportunities, including radical hysterectomy, myomectomy for removing fibroids from the uterus, and various types of transvaginal surgery.
