Background: The extraperitoenal approach for radical prostatectomy is a minimally invasive technique with a low incidence of complications. Aim: To report a series of patients with localized prostate cancer, managed with extraperitoneal laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (ELRP). Patients and Methods: Report of 106 patients (age range 40-78 years)successively subjected to ELRP between May 2002 and January 2004. Results: Preoperative prostate specific antigen ranged from 1.6 to 66.8 ng/ml. Mean operative time was 156 minutes (range: 80-390 minutes). Mean blood loss was 577 mL and transfusion rate was 26%. Analgesics were used in the first 36 hours after surgical procedure and opiates were not required. Mean hospital stay was 3 days and average urinary catheter use was 7 days. The most common complications were urinary retention in 6.6% , rectal lesions in 5.6%, vesico-urethral anastomosis stricture in 5.6%, vesico-rectal fistula in 2.8% and vesico-urethral anastomosis leak in 2.8% of patients. Conclusions: ELRP is a well tolerated procedure, with good operative results in terms of postoperative pain and hospital stay. However, when complications occur, they tend to be more severe than in open surgery
