We aimed to investigate the effects of intra-abdominal pressure and steep Trendelenburg position on the intrarenal vascular parameters and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in the first 24 hours of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) surgery.
We prospectively studied 31 men who underwent RARP for prostate cancer in our clinic between September and December 2017. Preoperative color Doppler ultrasonographic (CDUS) measurements of renal intravascular parameters were obtained 24 hours before the operation. Similarly, postoperative CDUS measurements were performed 24 hours after RARP. Preoperative serum creatinine (Cr) level and eGFR were noted. On the postoperative first day, serum Cr levels were checked and eGFR was calculated.
