Background: The debate between single-layer and double-layer renorrhaphy techniques during robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN) represents a subject of ongoing discourse. The present analysis aims to compare the perioperative and functional outcomes of single- versus double-layer renorrhaphy during RPN. Methods: Study data were retrieved from prospectively maintained institutional database (Jan2018-May2023). Study population was divided into two groups according to the number of layers (single vs. double) used for renorrhaphy. Baseline and perioperative data were compared. Postoperative surgical outcomes included type and grade of complications as classified according to Clavien-Dindo. Serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate were used to measure renal function. Results: Three hundred seventeen patients were included in the analysis: 209 received single-layer closure, while 108 underwent double-layer renorrhaphy. Baseline characteristics were not statistically different between the groups. Comparable low incidence of intraoperative complications was observed between the cohorts (P=0.5). No difference was found in terms of mean (95% CI) Hb level drop postoperation (single-layer: 1.6 g/dL [1.5-1.7] vs. double-layer: 1.4 g/dL [1.2-1.5], P=0.3). Overall and "major" rate of complications were 16% and 3%, respectively, with no difference observed in terms of any grade (P=0.2) and major complications (P=0.7). Postoperative renal function was not statistically different between the treatment modalities. At logistic regression analyses, no difference in terms of probability of overall (OR 0.82 [0.63-1.88]) and major (OR 0.94 [0.77-6.44]) complications for the number of suture layers was observed. Conclusions: Single-layer and double-layer renorrhaphy demonstrated comparable perioperative and functional outcomes within the setting of the present study.

Abstract

Background: The debate between single-layer and double-layer renorrhaphy techniques during robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RPN) represents a subject of ongoing discourse. The present analysis aims to compare the perioperative and functional outcomes of single- versus double-layer renorrhaphy during RPN. Methods: Study data were retrieved from prospectively maintained institutional database (Jan2018-May2023). Study population was divided into two groups according to the number of layers (single vs. double) used for renorrhaphy. Baseline and perioperative data were compared. Postoperative surgical outcomes included type and grade of complications as classified according to Clavien-Dindo. Serum creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate were used to measure renal function. Results: Three hundred seventeen patients were included in the analysis: 209 received single-layer closure, while 108 underwent double-layer renorrhaphy. Baseline characteristics were not statistically different between the groups. Comparable low incidence of intraoperative complications was observed between the cohorts (P=0.5). No difference was found in terms of mean (95% CI) Hb level drop postoperation (single-layer: 1.6 g/dL [1.5-1.7] vs. double-layer: 1.4 g/dL [1.2-1.5], P=0.3). Overall and "major" rate of complications were 16% and 3%, respectively, with no difference observed in terms of any grade (P=0.2) and major complications (P=0.7). Postoperative renal function was not statistically different between the treatment modalities. At logistic regression analyses, no difference in terms of probability of overall (OR 0.82 [0.63-1.88]) and major (OR 0.94 [0.77-6.44]) complications for the number of suture layers was observed. Conclusions: Single-layer and double-layer renorrhaphy demonstrated comparable perioperative and functional outcomes within the setting of the present study.
