All rights reserved.Among 1250 robotic radical prostatectomy procedures that were performed at our department, we identified three patients with previous cerebrovascular disease history. Of those, postoperative follow-up was uneventful for two patients. One patient who had a history of cranial meningioma developed urge urinary incontinence and trigerring of epilepsy in the perioperative follow-up, two months after the robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy procedure. Medical management resolved the symptoms.
