Novel approach to recurrent cavoatrial renal cell carcinoma

, : Novel approach to recurrent cavoatrial renal cell carcinoma. Annals of Thoracic Surgery 93(5): E119-E121

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with cavoatrial extension is a rare and complex problem. Complete resection is difficult but correlates with favorable patient outcomes. We present 2 cases of successful reoperative resections of recurrent RCC in patients with level III-IV cavoatrial involvement. We used a thoracoabdominal approach, peripheral cannulation, and hypothermic circulatory arrest. We advocate this novel approach as a successful means of avoiding a more difficult reoperation.
