Session

Surgery for renal cancer beyond minimally invasive approaches: Opportunities and limits

ESU Course 05

  • Location:
    Room 21 (ICM, Level 2)
  • Chair:
     M. Kuczyk, Hanover (DE)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Addressing patients with locally advanced renal cell cancer with / without intraval tumour thrombosis usually not being considered candidates for laparoscopy, the current course presents tips and tricks for the surgical management of these cases. In addition, the indication for and the potential clinical value of metastasectomy, cytoreductive nephrectomy and lymph node dissection in the aforementioned clinical situation is revisited.
    • Tips and tricks for the surgical management of locally advanced renal cancer with / without intracaval tumor thrombosis
    • What is the indication for and the value of metastasectomy in renal cancer patients?
    • Can we define the ideal candidate for cytoreductive nephrectomy?
    • Is there any value of a more extended lymph node dissection during nephrectomy?
