Anaesthetic Challenges in Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy
Robotic prostatectomy is rapidly becoming a new standard surgical procedure for the treatment of prostate cancer because of less post-operative morbidity, early mobilisation and discharge1.Robotic assisted prostatectomy is conducted in very few centres, and requires extreme Trendelenburg position for long hours, hemodynamic lability, restricted access to the patient and altered ventilator strategies 2.
