[Research Presentation] BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is a new surgical technique used worldwide to minimise surgical trauma. It has many potential benefits including shorter length of stay, faster patient recovery, less postoperative pain and an earlier return to preoperative function. Little is known however, about the trajectory of recovery and patient outcomes for this patient cohort.áAIMS: The overall aim was to map patient trajectory of recovery following RARP during two care transitions for a cohort of patients in Australia 2006.áThe specific aims were to map the trajectory of pain intensity and quality, identify time to mobilisation, determine the incidence and trajectory of complications, and describe functional status and quality of life. METHODS: A prospective, descriptive, survey design was used to track patient recovery during two key transitions: acute (time in ward) and intermediate (7 days and 4 weeks) using the Urologic Surgery Patient Recovery Survey incorporating the Short Form 36, American Pain Society Patient Outcome Questionnaire, McGill-Melzack Pain Questionnaire and the Sexual Health Inventory for Men. RESULTS: Prospective data have been collected from 28 consecutive patients. Preoperatively all participants reported good health with few co-morbidities. The majority had a BMI over 25kg/m2. Mean duration of surgery was 204 (SD=15) minutes; length of stay was three (SD = 0.716) days. On day one the majority of patients had mobilised and pain was reported as mild to moderate in intensity. By week four most participants reported urinary continence and had returned to work. DISCUSSION: Findings suggest that RARP patients experience faster recovery than conventional prostatectomy surgery patients and provide the basis for the development of evidence based practice guidelines to optimise care for this patient cohort.
