Abstract In 1997, the first report of sural nerve interposition grafting during radical prostatectomy was published in Urology. The favorable findings in this initial pilot study generated numerous follow-up reports that have demonstrated conflicting and contradictory outcomes. Certainly, controversy exists regarding the true benefit of nerve grafting. This review will objectively and critically summarize the salient literature, discuss evolving techniques, and offer insight into the future of interposition grafting in the current era of clinically localized prostate cancer and robotic prostatectomy.
