Prostate cancer is a common malignant tumor in men. Radical prostatectomy is one of the main treatments for non metastatic prostate cancer. Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is based on the original traditional open surgery, the incision is condensed into 3-4 small holes, and through these holes to remove the malignant tumor to complete the operation.

A 75 year old patient with prostate cancer was found to have abnormal urine after examination. After active communication with patients and their families, the urology medical team of conch hospital quickly performed prostate biopsy for patients. The patient's pathological diagnosis of prostatic adenocarcinoma suggested a medium-term malignant tumor. After in-depth discussion by the Department team, the diagnosis of malignant tumor was clear and no distant metastasis was found.

In order to ensure the life safety of patients, surgery should be limited. Considering that the patients are older and have poor physical tolerance, and the patients with traditional open large incision surgery are difficult to tolerate, the urology team decided to carry out laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. At the same time, the Department of anesthesiology was contacted to actively evaluate the preoperative anesthesia.

Recently, under the guidance of chief physician Cheng Qingshui of yijishan hospital, the urology department of conch hospital and the operating room completed laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for patients. The total operation time was only 2 hours, and the bleeding was less than 20ml. The complete resection of prostate lesions and the perfect anastomosis of bladder neck and urethra laid a solid foundation for patients' rapid recovery and long-term high-quality life. The patient could get out of bed and walk normally on the second day after operation. After 5 days, he could take care of himself. He recovered and discharged in less than a week.

Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is the most difficult operation in urology. It is also an important indicator to measure the comprehensive level of a urologist and even the whole urological medical team. The success of the conch hospital for elderly patients with a variety of basic diseases completed endoscopic surgery and rapid rehabilitation, marking a very important step in the field of minimally invasive treatment of malignant tumors.
