Re: Comparing Off-Clamp and On-Clamp Robot-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy: A Prospective Randomized Trial
We commend with Anderson and co-workers for their efforts. They performed a prospective randomized trial addressing the comparison of on-clamp vs off-clamp technique for robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN).1 Recent systematic literature reviews already showed no impact of the technique used to manage the renal pedicle on either surgical or oncological outcomes.2 This is debatable and based on pooled analyses of mostly small sample size studies, affected by several confounders, including selection bias (off-clamp approach is more likely performed in low complexity tumors) and heterogeneity in the surgical techniques used.
To determine the safety and efficacy of Advanced Practice Provider (APP) performed NBCs, we reviewed outcomes of NBCs performed by pediatric urologists and APPs. We hypothesize comparable clinical outcomes between the groups.
