7 patients, suffering by prostatic adenocarcinoma in clinical stage B, were undergone to laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy, to obtain a complete staging. The average time of execution of the operation was 180 minutes. The absence of important complications during and after surgical time, within low surgical trauma, has allowed the dismission of patients 48 hours after the operation. The low morbility demonstrated for this technique has allowed the dissection of a number of lymph node to consent an adequate staging.
