The steep (40 degrees) Trendelenburg position optimizes surgical exposure during robotic prostatectomy. The goal of the current study was to investigate the combined effect of this position and CO 2 pneumoperitoneum on cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and respiratory homeostasis during these procedures.
The combination of prolonged steep Trendelenburg position and CO 2 pneumoperitoneum was well tolerated by the patients. Hemodynamic and pulmonary parameters remained within safe limits.
