Recently, increasing numbers of robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) have been performed at many centers. During urethrovesical anastomosis in RALP, surgeons commonly use Large Needle Driver (Intuitive Surgical, Mountain View, Calif). In this study, we report a rare case with intraperitoneal breakage of the jaw of Large Needle Driver.
