Abstract

We aimed to develop and validate a scoring system as an objective assessment tool for predicting clinical failure after pediatric robotic extravesical ureteral reimplantation. Data for this multi-institutional retrospective cohort was obtained from two tertiary referral hospitals. We defined clinical failure as incomplete radiographic resolution or post-operative febrile UTI. Patients were stratified into low, intermediate, and high-risk groups according to the score. External validation was performed using the model projected to the external validation cohort. An amount of 115 renal units in the development cohort and 46 renal units in the validation cohort were analyzed. The prediction score was calculated with weighted points to each variable according to their regression coefficient as age (year) + BMI + BBD times 10 + VUR grade times 7 + console time (h) + hospital stay times 6. The C-index of our scoring system was 0.850 and 0.770 in the development and validation cohorts, respectively. Clinical failure was significantly different among risk groups: 0% (low-risk), 3.3% (intermediate-risk), and 22.2% (high-risk) (p = 0.004) in the development cohort. A novel scoring system using multiple pre-and intra-operative variables provides a prediction of children at risk of failure after robotic extravesical ureteral reimplantation.
