The aim of the present review is to focus on the various attempts of categorisation of complications after endoscopic extraperitoneal and laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy. Several classifications of complications and adverse events have been proposed in the literature but none is widely accepted or applied so far. We thus present a review of the existing literature and the complications of our series of 900 patients treated with endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE). We applied the recently revised Clavien classification system to grade EERPE complications.
