New Techniques in the Surgery of Small Cell Renal Cancer


Technological developments have made the minimal invasive procedures easier and providing for better preservation of the remaining kidney tissue in renal cancer treatment. It has been the important subjects in international congresses.

Thanks to the cameras that make the near infrared light after injection of the substance named indocyanine green (ICG) into the body, it is possible to view the renal vessels and their branches. In this way, it can be possible to differentiate the particular vessels that nourish the part of the kidney which include renal cancer and can be clamped temporarily as required by the surgical technique., Therefore, both the safe removal of the mass is ensured, and also the damages on the remaining kidney tissue are minimized.

Widespread use of this technology will reduce the intra-operative stresses of urologists and it will be possible to offer better healthcare services to patients.
