Kidney Tumor Ablation in 2022: Optimal Outcomes

Jeffrey A.Cadeddu, MD, discusses optimal outcomes in kidney tumor ablation. He reviews reliable and reproducible 5+ year data comparing ablation effectiveness and outcomes to that of surgery and emphasizes that for tumors of <3 cm, tumor ablation is indicated. Dr. Cadeddu explains that ablation is nephron-preserving and minimizes chronic kidney disease progression, is less expensive than conventional surgery, reduces risk of metastatic potential associated with AS, and in addition to tumor size, histologic subtype is an important consideration in treatment decision-making.
