Bladder Cancer Clinical Trial

Evaluating Return to Continence and Potency Following Radical Prostatectomy

Summary

The purpose of this research is to determine if using human placental membrane (also called an allograft) helps to improve recovery time for erectile function and bladder control after having robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) surgery.

Primary Objective(s):

To evaluate the safety and feasibility of MLG-Completeâ„¢ allograft placement in patients who undergo robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) with bilateral nerve sparing.
To determine the effectiveness of using MLG-Completeâ„¢ allograft to optimize return to erectile function (potency) in patients who have had robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) with bilateral nerve sparing by utilizing the Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM) score.
To determine the effectiveness of using MLG-Completeâ„¢ allograft to optimize return to continence in patients who have had robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) with bilateral nerve sparing by utilizing the American Urological Association (AUA) symptom score, assessing daily pad use from direct patient report, and by utilizing the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Urinary Incontinence Short Form (ICIQ-UI Short Form).

OUTLINE: Patients undergo RARP with placement of the MLG-Complete allograft on study.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months.
