Kidney cancer: cryotherapy preferred than ablation

A crew at Rangueil University Hospital in Toulouse has successfully treated by percutaneous cryotherapy five people with light kidney cancer. This new and soft technique destroys diseased tissue by using extreme cold to the tumor.

After the one in Strasbourg where 20 interventions 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 detour the use of kidney removal. Thus the renal usage is then kept.

Since the 1970s, the occurence of kidney cancer has been increasing. Actually, in France, 8,500 new cases are discovered each year.

During the reference treatment was, until today, the absolute ablation of the tumor-bearing kidney, the development of new methods can augment patient survival and save the kidneys. This is particularly the case of partial nephrectomy (partial ablation click here 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.
