Optimal Surgical Outcome of Minimally Invasive Partial Nephrectomy (MIPN) Based on an Early Postoperative Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR).

To compare laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) and robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) performed in two European tertiary centers using the classic optimal surgical definition - "MIC" - and a new optimal surgical definition: the "Novel TRIFECTA" (NT) concept. We sought to strengthen the PN evidence and to test the NT's performance.

The study population comprehended 505 cases of localized kidney cancer from two tertiary centers between 2012 and 2019. The NT achievement was higher in the RAPN group when compared to LPN (70.5 vs. 87.4%; p = 0.004), while no differences were found when considering the MIC criteria. Also, a similar high-grade complications rate (Clavien-Dindo > III) and operative time (105 min vs. 100 min; p = NS) were found. In the multivariable regression, the RAPN approach was a predictor of NT achievement (OR 2.45; p = 0.008). NT achievement was higher in the RAPN group, while similar results were found when evaluating the MIC criteria. The NT definition could be more sensitive to the individual-specific responses related to the PN.
