Abstract

We describe our approach of posterior ligation of the renal artery during resection of large hypervascular right renal tumors. This technique uses en bloc mobilization of the inferior vena cava and renal tumor to ligate the renal artery at its origin from the aorta. In our experience, the use of this posterior approach for renal artery ligation is safe and effective, even with large renal tumors with multiple collaterals and/or lymph nodes making the identification of the renal artery difficult.
