The Patient-Oriented Prostate Utility Scale (PORPUS) is a validated, sensitive, and specific tool consisting of 10 independent QoL domains that is aggregated as a psychometric score.
We sought to quantify global differences in prostate-specific HRQoL outcomes after RARP and ORP using the PORPUS and to compare our surgical outcomes in the 2 most-quoted treatment-specific domains, potency and voiding function, using the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) (10) and IPSS, respectively.
We measured HRQoL using the PORPUS, a 10-domain multi-attribute health classification system that measures a patient's physical and emotional status (Appendix).

More than three centuries ago, the first settlers, arrived at Cape Porpus

The Patient-Oriented Prostate Utility Scale (PORPUS) measures disease-specific HRQOL across 10 domains pertinent to PCa patients.[sup.17] The psychometric scale (used in this study) is disease-specific, brief and comprehensive in assessing PCa related HRQOL domains.
At the baseline assessment, participants were given a second set of questionnaires (IPSS and PORPUS) to complete 4 weeks after surgery.
A patient's utility for his own health can be directly elicited from patients using methods such as the standard gamble.[sup.5] Utility may also be measured indirectly, using questionnaire-based instruments, such as the EQ-5D (all diseases/health outcomes)[sup.6] or the Patient-Oriented Prostate Utility Scale (PORPUS) (prostate cancer only).[sup.7]-[sup.9]
We measured preference (i.e., utility) and non-preference-based HRQoL using the PORPUS.[sup.9] This 10-domain multi-attribute health classification system measures a patient's physical and emotional status (Appendix).
The Patient-Oriented Prostate Utility Scale (PORPUS), a validated 10-item prostate cancer specific health-related quality of life questionnaire,[sup.14,15] was prospectively self-administered by patients preoperatively and at each follow-up clinic visit.
Incontinence was defined by a single item on the PORPUS questionnaire (Table 1).
