Kidney cancer: cryotherapy better than ablation

A group at Rangueil University Hospital in Toulouse has successfully treated by percutaneous cryotherapy five patients with light kidney cancer. This new and soft technique eliminates diseased tissue by applying extreme cold to the tumor.

After the one in Strasbourg where 20 operations have already been done, the University Hospital of Toulouse is among the first centers to have this method of cryotherapy, whose principal advantage is to avoid the use of kidney removal. Thus the renal usage is then kept.

From the 1970s, the incidence of kidney cancer has been raising. Actually, in France, 8,500 new cases are diagnosed each year.

During the reference treatment was, until today, the full removal of the tumor-bearing kidney, the evolution of new techniques can improve client survival and save the kidneys. This is particularly the case of partial nephrectomy (partial ablation of the kidney) or lumpectomy (ablation of the single tumor).

As check here for cryotherapy, "it is a real plus value in the management of patients with renal tumors," said Toulouse Hospitals. The intervention is less disturbing, the follow-up simpler and the duration of hospitalization shorter.
