Abstract

Radical nephrectomy with en bloc inferior vena caval tumor thrombectomy improves survival in patients with renal cell carcinoma with a tumor thrombus extending into the inferior vena cava. Cardiopulmonary bypass with or without deep-hypothermic circulatory arrest is advocated when the tumor thrombus extends into the right heart chambers. Right heart bypass was used to remove such a tumor thrombus successfully for the first time in a patient with renal cell carcinoma.
