Abstract

Radical nephrectomy with tumor thrombectomy remains the mainstay of treatment in renal cell carcinoma with inferior vena cava extension. Despite the rapid improvements experienced in perioperative care in recent years, this intervention still often results in significant morbidity and mortality. A deeper understanding of salient features of this complex operation provides a valuable insight into the clinical mechanisms underlying the variations observed in surgical outcomes. The 'operation profile' serves not only as a basis for making an adequate prognostic assessment, but also creates a platform from which 'innovative' strategies for improving quality and safety can be made. The present review aims to set a 'profile' for radical nephrectomy and tumor thrombectomy, and to propose a number of strategies that may reduce the complication rates of this intervention.
