 From European Urology / PubMed: Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) outcomes might be importantly affected by increasing surgical experience

Partial Abstract from European UrologyPubMed:

Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) outcomes might be importantly affected by increasing surgical experience (EXP). The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of EXP on warm ischemia time (WIT), presence of at least one Clavien-Dindo ≥2 postoperative complication (CD ≥ 2), and positive surgical margins (PSMs) to define the learning curve for RAPN. We evaluated 457 consecutive patients diagnosed with a cT1-T2 renal mass were evaluated.
