Read the abstract of the medical case
Cold saline irrigation of
the renal pelvis during Radiofrequency Ablation of a central renal neoplasm: a
Thermal destruction mediated by
radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is gaining attention as an alternative treatment
for patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), particularly in those who are not
candidates for open surgery. Treatment of central tumours is occasionally
associated with complications such as ureteric stricture, injury to the psoas
muscle, haematuria and vascular laceration.
We have used infusion of cold
saline during RFA, through a retrograde ureteric catheter with its tip in the
renal pelvis, in a patient with a central renal tumour.
We believe this process to have
successfully avoided the risk of thermal injury.
