Radical prostatectomy is the standard for the cure of localized prostate cancer... With the development of laparoscopic and robotic techniques, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) or robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has been widely accepted with advantages of less invasiveness, shorter recovery, less blood loss, and better visualization of the operative region compared to open techniques... Under general anesthesia, the patient is put in Trendelenburg position... The working space for extraperitoneal approach is created by a cost-effective self-made balloon dilator... After the transaction of the anterior wall of the bladder, the tip of Foley catheter can be suspended to the abdominal wall in order to lift the prostate... Following the transaction of the bladder neck, the ampullary segments of the vasa deferentia could be found and the vasa deferentia are transected... The postoperative hospital stay was 6.7 ± 1.8 (5–9) days, the duration of catheter was 12.8 ± 3.6 (7–18) days... No anastomosis leakage was found... Radical prostatectomy is the standard for the cure of localized prostate cancer... With the development of the instruments, pure laparoscopic or RARP was widely adopted in different countries with advantages of less invasiveness, shorter recovery, less blood loss, and better visualization of the operative region compared to open techniques... A lot of modified van Velthoven techniques were reported using clips or barbed self-retaining suture to facilitate VUA during LRP or RARP... The mean VUA time of 19.0 minutes in knotless LRP is satisfying... The results of our modified technique are relatively satisfying... Postoperative continence is acceptable for patients... In conclusion, the modified approach of knotless LRP could be an easy and safe technique.

Figure 1: Control of the DVC with 1-0 V-Loc. (a) Suturing of the DVC. (b) Threading into the end. (c) Make the first “Knot”. (d) Second bite to make tightness

Mentions: The deep DVC is sutured using a 15-cm 1-0 1/2 circle barbed self-retaining suture (V-Loc 180, Covidien, Mansfield, MA, USA) with three bites at the same place [Figure 1]. No knot is required for this step.
