Using an allograft made up of dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) wrapped around the neurovascular bundle (NVB) during nerve-sparing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) improved continence and potency postsurgery, according to results of a small study conducted by Vipul R. Patel, MD, professor of urology, University of Central Florida College of Medicine and medical director, Global Robotics Institute at Florida Hospital Celebration Health. Findings were published online in European Urology.
