Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy (LRP) is an accepted technique for the management of localised prostate cancer which delivers similar oncological and functional outcomes to the open procedure1. The vesico-urethral anastomosis is a critical step of the operation and an important determinant of long term functional outcomes. Several methods of performing the anastomosis have been described, however none have clearly been shown to be superior2.
