abstract

  • In patients with renal cell carcinoma, combined renal embolization and nephrectomy minimizes patient discomfort and post-infarction syndrome associated with traditional staged treatment. Moreover, it is associated with reduced hospital costs, due in part to decreased hospital length of stay. Vascular surgeons with endovascular skills are well suited to perform intraoperative renal artery embolization. Use of adjunctive endovascular techniques to facilitate large open procedures is a growing role for the endovascular-competent vascular surgeon.
