Sutureless Robot Assisted PN
A technique of sutureless Robot Assisted Partial Nephrectomy using â€˜Soft Coagulationâ€™ is being described. It is mentioned that in Soft Coagulation Mode, the output voltage is regulated <190â€‰V and generates Joule heat without producing sparks that cause tissue carbonization (setting of 7 and 80 V).

How many of us are performing such sutureless technique when performing PN for Renal Masses.
Is it more advantageous than using sutures at the tumour resected site?
I am sure many who perform PN regularly can provide an answer for the same.
With warm Regards,
