ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND/AIM:

To evaluate the chronological changes in health-related quality of life and treatment satisfaction after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP).

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

A total of 196 patients were included, and treatment satisfaction was evaluated using the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite (EPIC) score before and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after RARP.

RESULTS:

At 12 months after RARP, 64.8% of patients were satisfied. On the contrary, 4.6% of patients were dissatisfied at 12 months after RARP. In a multivariate analysis, only urinary bother of EPIC was significantly associated with satisfaction at 12 months after RARP (p=0.025, odds ratio=1.029).

CONCLUSION:

Treatment satisfaction with RARP was generally acceptable from 1 to 12 months after surgery and did not change over time. Urinary bother was associated with satisfaction at 12 months after RARP. Compared with the objective 24-hour pad test, questionnaires answered subjectively were more associated with satisfaction.
