INTRODUCTION: We investigated the prevalence, variables associated with parastomal hernia (PSH), and its outcomes of after robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) and ileal conduit (IC) for bladder cancer. METHODS: Retrospective review of RARC at our institution was conducted. PSH was defined as protrusion of abdominal contents through the stoma defect in the abdominal wall on cross sectional imaging. PSH was further described in terms of patient and hernia characteristics, symptoms, management and outcomes. Kaplan Meier method was used to depict time to PSH and time to surgery. Multivariate stepwise logistic regression was used to evaluate variables associated with PSH. RESULTS: 383 patients underwent RARC and IC. 75 patients (20%) had PSH, of whom 23 (31%) were symptomatic and 11 (15 %) underwent treatment. Median time to PSH was 13 months (IQR 9-22). PSH occurred at a rate of 9%, 23% and 32% at 1, 2 and 3 years respectively. Patients with PSH had significantly higher BMI (30 vs 28, p=0.02), longer overall operative time (357 vs 340 min, p=0.01), and higher blood loss (325 vs 250, p=0.04). On Multivariate analysis, operative time (OR 1.25, 95% CI 1.21-3.90, p<0.001), fascial defect ≥30mm (OR 5.23, 95% CI 2.32-11.8, p<0.001) and lower postoperative eGFR (OR 2.17, 95%CI 1.21-3.90, p=0.01) were significantly associated with PSH. CONCLUSION: Approximately one-third of PSH patients will develop symptoms and 15% will require surgery. Risk for developing PSH plateaued after the 3rd postoperative year. Longer operative time, larger fascial defect and lower postoperative kidney functions were associated with PSH.

The quantity of the preserved parenchyma after partial nephrectomy is the result of interplay among various factors: the unmodifiable preoperative quality of the renal parenchyma and some technical modifiable aspects. Among the modifiable factors able to influence the quantity, the suture technique has gained paramount importance. Indeed, nowadays there is a consensus suggesting that one of the main predictors of the ultimate renal function is the minimal parenchymal volume loss: this is the sum of the healthy parenchyma excised with the tumour and the portion of the parenchyma devascularised by the renorrhaphy. The historical aim of a good suture was to avoid bleeding and urine leakage. A modern suture after partial nephrectomy should minimise the ischaemic effect on the renal parenchyma whenever possible. This has to be carried out with precision and based on the vascular anatomy of the kidney. PATIENT SUMMARY: In this report, we tried to describe the best practice for the suturing of renal parenchyma after conservative surgical treatment for small renal tumours. Indeed, the suture after the resection of a renal mass should minimise the ischaemic effect on the renal tissue whenever possible, maximising the functional outcomes.

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common and serious complication of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Transfusion of older red blood cells (RBCs) has been implicated in poor outcomes in trauma, cardiac surgery, and critically ill patients. However, whether transfusion of older RBCs plays any role in post-OLT AKI remained unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the age of transfused RBCs on post-OLT AKI. METHODS: The clinical data of consecutive adult patients who received donation after cardiac death and underwent OLT from December 2011 to December 2015 were analyzed. These patients were divided into 2 groups: the newer blood group, who received exclusively RBCs that had been stored for <14 days; and the older blood group, who received RBCs that had been stored for 14 days or more. The incidence of post-OLT AKI, severe AKI, lengths of intensive care unit and hospital stay, and in-hospital mortality after OLT were analyzed. RESULTS: Postoperative AKI occurred in 65.1% of patients in the older blood group and 40.5% of patients in the newer blood group (P < .01). The incidence of severe AKI after OLT was significantly higher, and the duration of intensive care unit stay was significantly longer, in the older blood group. After adjustment by the multivariable regression logistic analysis, transfusion of older blood was independently associated with post-OLT AKI (odds ratio [OR] = 2.47 [95% confidence interval {CI}, 1.13-5.41]; P = .024) and severe AKI (OR = 5.88 [95% CI, 2.06-16.80]; P = .001). After adjustment by the inverse probability of treatment weighting analysis, patients in the older blood group still had significantly higher incidences of postoperative AKI (OR = 2.13 [95% CI, 1.07-4.22]; P = .030) and severe AKI (OR = 3.34 [95% CI, 1.47-7.60]; P = .003) than those in the newer blood group. CONCLUSIONS: Transfusion of older RBCs significantly increased the risk of postoperative AKI in liver transplant recipients.
