OBJECTIVE To compare surgical, pathological, short-term functional data, and complications of endoscopic robotic-assisted simple enucleation (ERASE) and open simple enucleation (OSE). METHODS We undertook matched-pair analysis (age, tumor size, and preoperative aspects and dimensions used for an anatomical [PADUA] score) of 392 patients treated with simple enucleation (SE) for T1a-T1b renal tumors in our department, including 160 patients in the OSE group and 80 in the ERASE group… CONTINUE READING
