Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Identification of patients in whom the perineal route is the optimal approach to perform radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During 1992-1999, 376 patients with prostate cancer underwent radical perineal prostatectomy. Four patients were identified in whom the perineal approach was indicated because of previous bilateral groin hernia repair using synthetic meshes. In addition, 1 patient underwent perineal prostatectomy elsewhere for similar reasons. RESULTS: The perineal approach offered an uneventful surgical solution for an adequate and straightforward radical perineal prostatectomy without complications and without biochemical recurrence during the follow-up. CONCLUSION: Radical perineal prostatectomy is suggested to be the optimal approach in patients with previous bilateral groin hernia repair using synthetic, nonabsorbable meshes.
