Objective: 3D models are increasingly used as additional preoperative tools for renal surgery. We aim to evaluate the impact of 3D renal models in the assessment of PADUA, RENAL, Contact Surface Area (CSA) and Arterial Based Complexity (ABC) for the prediction of complications after Robot assisted Partial Nephrectomy (RAPN).
Methods And Materials: Overall, 57 patients with T1 and 1 patient with T2 renal mass referred to RAPN, were prospectively enrolled. Read More
