SECIN, Fernando P. y BIANCO, Fernando J.. Surgical anatomy of radical prostatectomy: Periprostatic fascial anatomy and overview of the urinary sphincters. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.4, pp.255-266. ISSN 0004-0614.
Advances in the understanding of prostate and pelvic anatomy in recent years made a substantial contribution to improve the surgical technique for the treatment of prostate cancer (PC) with the potential preservation of anatomic structures responsible for erectile and urinary function postoperatively. Knowledge of these anatomic structures is key to achieve a complete removal of the prostate and seminal vesicles while preserving the best possible quality of life. The literature on prostate and pelvic anatomy has been reviewed and an updated notion of the surgical anatomy is herein provided.
