invasive and enables a high degree of precision. Since 2000, over 900 of such systems have been installed in hospitals worldwide, of which more than 700 are located in North America. Estimates show that more than 90,000 radical prostatectomies were performed in 2007 in the United States. Currently it is estimated that more than 70% of radical prostatectomies are performed robotically.

Post-Operative Incontinence and Erectile Dysfunction

Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are very common side effects following open or robotic radical prostatectomy. Temporary loss of bladder control occurs in most men. While most eventually regain full control, this can take up to a year. This extended lack of urinary 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(TM) 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
