Mari et al. described the factors leading to post-surgical complications of partial nephrectomy. The areas of study included 3 approaches: open, laparoscopy, and robotic-assisted. In total, their study included 2,584 patients, and analyzed the following: significant potential risk factors such as age, ASA score, clinical stage (T2 vs. T1a), PADUA score, preoperative anemia, and open and laparoscopic approach vs. robotic-assisted. Using these factors for analyses, they developed the predicting nomogram for post-surgical complications (1).
