From January 1991 to July 1992, a total of 10 patients underwent radical retropubic prostatectomy according to Bressel. With this technique it is possible to save the bladder neck and reduce anastomosis stenosis, and urinary incontinence. A normal voiding pattern was recorded in nine patients. One patient presented urge incontinence; upon cystometrogram detrusor instability was revealed. A pressure flow study showed a mean urethral opening pressure of 24 cm H2O, and a maximum detrusor pressure of 38 cm H2O. It is believed that this technique may reduce complications of vesical-urethral anastomosis.
