Renal tumors percutaneous ablation by microwave. Initial experience.
CONCLUSION: Percutaneous ablation of renal tumors seems to be a safe and effective technique, either via transpulmonary, transperitoneal or retroperitoneal approach, depending on tumor location. KEY POINTS: • Microwave ablation produces coagulation necrosis. • The sink effect is smaller in microwave ablation. • Microwave ablation seems to be safe and effective. • The type of approach is not correlated with major complications (Clavien> o =II).

CONCLUSION: Our retrospective evaluation of this large patient series reveals that, PNL is a very effective treatment modality for kidney stones. However, although rare, serious complications including death can occur. . PMID: 26571313 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
