Computer guided surgery for prostatic nerve sparing

, : Computer guided surgery for prostatic nerve sparing. Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1279(3), Feb 17

The computer system is capable of acquiring and displaying images of the prostate of a patient for assisting a surgeon in placing ablative elements in the prostate of the patient. The computer system is programmed with software capable of: 1) determining the dimensions of the prostate; and, 2) determining the dimensions and location of a treatment zone. The treatment zone is determined to include only one neurovascular bundle of the prostate and exclude the other neurovascular bundle of the prostate. The system utilizes the determined dimensions of the prostate and treatment zone for computing the number and location of ablative elements needed to treat the treatment zone while minimizing any adverse effect on the patient's sexual function.
