Results Overall, 27 patients underwent simultaneous bilateral RAPN, and 54 RAPNs were performed without need of conversion; median operative time was 250 minutes, median estimated blood loss was 200 mL. Renal artery clamping was needed for 27 (50%) RAPNs with a median warm ischemia time of 15 minutes and no case of acute kidney injury.

Abstract

Purpose There is currently no consensus regarding the optimal treatment strategy for patients presenting with synchronous bilateral renal masses. The decision to perform bilateral procedures on the same intervention or in staged procedures is debated. The aim of this manuscript is to analyse the outcomes of simultaneous robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) in a series of patients with bilateral renal masses treated at five Italian robotic institutions. Methods Data from a prospectively maintained multi-institutional database on patients subjected to simultaneous RAPN between November 2011 and July 2019 were reviewed. RAPNs were performed with da Vinci Si or Xi surgical system by expert robotic surgeons. Baseline demographics and clinical features, peri- and post-operative data were collected. Results Overall, 27 patients underwent simultaneous bilateral RAPN, and 54 RAPNs were performed without need of conversion; median operative time was 250 minutes, median estimated blood loss was 200 mL. Renal artery clamping was needed for 27 (50%) RAPNs with a median warm ischemia time of 15 minutes and no case of acute kidney injury. Complications were reported in 7 (25.9%) patients, mainly represented by Clavien 2 events (6 blood transfusions). Positive surgical margins were assessed in 2 (3.7%) of the renal cell carcinoma. At the median follow-up of 30 months, recurrence-free survival was 100%. Conclusion Our data showed that, in selected patients and expert hands, simultaneous bilateral RAPNs could be a safe and feasible procedure with promising results for the treatment of bilateral synchronous renal masses.
