Abstract

Between August 1991 and July 1994, an original balloon-expanding urethral suture guide (24 F) was used in 157 consecutive cases of radical retropubic prostatectomy. Both the instrument and its clinical use are described. This guide guarantees good intraoperative exposure of the sectioned urethral stump during vesical reanastomosis, thus improving the technical feasibility of radical prostatectomy.
