Table 5 Multivariate analysis with respect to development of inguinal hernia after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (N = 307)

From: Incidence and risk factors of inguinal hernia after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy

Variables Adjusted OR (95% CI) P value
Age (≥67 vs <67 years) 1.02 (0.46–2.30) 0.960
Smoking history (No vs ≥yes) 1.55 (0.69–3.49) 0.287
BMI (<24 vs ≥24 kg/m2) 1.06 (0.46–2.38) 0.892
History of inguinal hernia repair (yes vs no) 1.03 (0.05–6.37) 0.976
Surgical experience (<40 vs ≥40 cases) 4.74 (1.57–20.56) 0.004
Continent at 3 months (no vs ≥yes) 6.41 (2.14–27.64) <0.001
  1. OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval, BMI body mass index
  2. Continence after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy was defined as pad-free (complete continence)
  3. Logistic regression model was used for multivariate analysis
  4. P value of <0.05 was considered to be statistically significant
