NeuroSAFE PROOF Randomised Controlled Feasibility Study: Brief Report of Perioperative Outcomes, Histological Concordance, and Feasibility
Erectile dysfunction is a common and significant side effect of radical prostatectomy (RP). Nerve-sparing (NS) RP improves recovery of erectile function, but the quality of NS can be impaired by concern about the oncological risks of positive surgical margins (PSM). The NeuroSAFE technique is an approach…
NeuroSAFE frozen section during robot‐assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP): Peri‐operative and Histopathological Outcomes from the NeuroSAFE PROOF Feasibility Randomised Controlled Trial
This feasibility study demonstrates the safety, the reproducibility and the excellent histopathological concordance of the NeuroSAFE technique in the NeuroSAFE PROOF trial. Though the technique increases the duration of RARP, this does not cause short‐term harm. Confirmation of feasibility has led to the opening of the fully powered NeuroSAFE PROOF RCT, which is currently underway at 4 sites in the UK.
