abstract

  • Of 18 patients with renal cell carcinoma extending into the inferior vena cava 16 underwent radical nephrectomy with either venacavotomy and tumor thrombectomy or vena cava resection. Of 8 patients with no evidence of metastasis at the time of surgery 4 (50 per cent) are free of cancer for a mean duration of 93 months. Of 8 patients with known preoperative metastasis 7 died with cancer after a mean survival of 12 months. Operative mortality was 6.2 per cent and morbidity was minimal.
