Aims and objectives: The purpose of this poster is to evaluate the effectiveness of cryoablation technique on a cohort of Patients (Pt) affected by surgically unresectable renal cancer. Nowadays, renal tumors account for about 2-3% of adult malignancies and in the USA has been reported an increase of 126% since 1950 wit[...]

Methods and materials: In this report we retrospectively analyze the experience of our center where we have treated and followed 35 Pts with unresectable renal cancer between 2011 and 2016. 30 Pts of this cohort were enrolled in the study. The inclusion criteria concerned with the characteristics of renal cancer: • Pati[...]

Results: After treatment Pt were subjected to a rigid follow-up with CT and / or MRI with contrast medium. The effectiveness of the treatment was confirmed by the radiologist according to morphological characteristics (volume stability or reduction) and densitometry of the injury. ¬ In 9 patients (30%) there[...]

Conclusion: This report confirms that percutaneous crio-ablative therapy is a safe and effective method for treatment of Pt affected by unresectable renal cancer, considering the new nephron-sparing philosophy [8,9]. The aim of this treatment is to reduce or to limit the growth of neoplastic lesion with a low i[...]
