The second is the liberal use of intraoperative imaging including laparoscopic ultrasound (LCA). Laparoscopic approach for renal ablation is used infrequently but still remains an option in selected patients with anteriorly located tumors. For image-guided PCA, US and CT or a combination of both is used during the tumor evaluation and probe placement. The final aspect is careful iceball monitoring during the freeze-thaw cycles to ensure that the iceball forms as expected with all 29 of the expected margins extending beyond the mass.
58 cm/year, and this suggests AS may represent a viable treatment option even in larger renal tumors and should be considered in patients presenting with significant competing risks or limited life expectancy [16, 17]. Partial nephrectomy remains the current gold standard treatment of T1a renal cell carcinoma (RCC), although long-term follow-up data on CA and RFA and results from emerging studies involving AS may warrant reassessment of treatment indications. As data continues to emerge and the role of renal biopsy has been expanding, the algorithm of directing the urologist toward immediate nephron-sparing surgical extirpation may continue to be amended to support increased use of AS and ablative therapy.
