Kidney cancer: cryotherapy rather than ablation

A team at Rangueil University Hospital in Toulouse has successfully treated by percutaneous cryotherapy five people with light kidney cancer. This new and gentle method eliminates diseased tissue by using extreme cold to the tumor.

After the one in Strasbourg where 20 interventions have already been performed, the University Hospital of Toulouse is among the genuine centers to have this method of cryotherapy, whose main advantage is to avoid the use of kidney ablation. Thus the renal function is then preserved.

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

While the reference treatment was, until recently, the website total removal of the tumor-bearing kidney, the development of new techniques can improve client survival and save the organ. This is particularly the case of limited nephrectomy (partial ablation of the kidney) or lumpectomy (ablation of the single tumor).

As for cryotherapy, "it is a real added value in the management of clients with renal cancer," said Toulouse Hospitals. The operation is less traumatic, the follow-up simpler and the duration of hospitalization shorter.
