Using an allograft made up of dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) wrapped around the neurovascular bundle (NVB) during nerve-sparing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) improved continence and potency postsurgery, according to results of a small study conducted by Vipul R.

Findings were published online in European Urology.
