  Purpose

For primary surgical treatment of prostate cancer the investigators compare the classic open surgery (radical retropubic prostatectomy, RRP) versus robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RALP). Oncological results are obtained at standard follow-up consultations through Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) measurement to detect biochemical recurrence. Functional results (continence, potency, quality of life) are obtained through standardised questionnaires. Currently the investigators perform all of their prostatectomies in a robot-assisted manner. For results of the open surgery the investigators send questionnaires to patients who had the operation in the past.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Biochemical recurrence at follow-up. [ Time Frame: 3 months after prostatectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSA measurement in the serum should not be > or = 0,20 ng/ml.

  • Biochemical recurrence at follow-up [ Time Frame: 6 months after prostatectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSA measurement in the serum should not be > or = 0,20 ng/ml.

  • Biochemical recurrence at follow-up. [ Time Frame: 9 months after prostatectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSA measurement in the serum should not be > or = 0,20 ng/ml.

  • Biochemical recurrence at follow-up. [ Time Frame: 1 year after prostatectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSA measurement in the serum should not be > or = 0,20 ng/ml.

  • Biochemical recurrence at follow-up. [ Time Frame: 6-monthly follow up between 1 and 5 years after prostatectomy. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSA measurement in the serum should not be > or = 0,20 ng/ml.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Functional assessment concerning continence. [ Time Frame: after 1, 3, 12 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients need to fill out questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C30, QLQ-PR25, ICIQ mLUTS and UI SF and IIEF). The patients in the radical retropubic prostatectomy group only fill out the questionnaires once.

  • Functional assessment concerning potency. [ Time Frame: after 1, 3, 12 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients need to fill out questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C30, QLQ-PR25, ICIQ mLUTS and UI SF and IIEF). The patients in the radical retropubic prostatectomy group only fill out the questionnaires once.

  • Functional assessment concerning quality of life. [ Time Frame: after 1, 3, 12 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients need to fill out questionnaires (EORTC QLQ-C30, QLQ-PR25, ICIQ mLUTS and UI SF and IIEF). The patients in the radical retropubic prostatectomy group only fill out the questionnaires once.
