Assessing the Impact of Renal Artery Clamping During Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy for Small Renal Masses: The Rationale and Design of the CLOCK II Randomized Phase III Trial.

BJU Int 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Unit of Urology, Spedali Civili Hospital, University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy.

An interplay among patient-related and surgery-related factors determine the functional recovery after partial nephrectomy (PN) [1]. The ischemic injury led by renal arterial clamping has historically been one of the major modifiable surgical factors responsible for the functional decrease after PN. As such, several techniques for minimizing or even eliminating the hilar clamping have been described [2]. Read More

Objectives: To predict urinary continence recovery after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) using a deep learning (DL) model, which was then used to evaluate surgeon's historical patient outcomes.

Subjects And Methods: Robotic surgical automated performance metrics (APMs) during RARP, and patient clinicopathological and continence data were captured prospectively from 100 contemporary RARPs. We used a DL model (DeepSurv) to predict postoperative urinary continence. Read More
