Abstract

OBJECTIVE: We assessed the safety and feasibility of minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery for horseshoe kidney (HSK). METHOD: A prospectively maintained data set for consecutive patients undergoing robotic kidney surgery was reviewed for patients with HSK. Cases were performed by experienced robotic surgeons, across two high-volume centres between 2016 and 2020. RESULTS: A prospectively maintained data set for consecutive patients undergoing robotic kidney surgery was reviewed for patients with HSK. Cases were performed by experienced robotic surgeons, across two high-volume centres between 2016 and 2020. CONCLUSION: We report one the largest series of robot-assisted surgery on HSK. Robotic surgery is safe and feasible for HSK in centralised high-volume centres with acceptable perioperative outcomes. Established benefits of minimally invasive surgery, such as reduced LOS and low complication rates, were demonstrated. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4.
