Abstract

Transcatheter arterial embolization has had an wide application in the control of bleeding of non-neoplastic origin. This approach has also been utilized in the treatment to tumors. Preoperative transcatheter embolization of renal neoplasm is helpful to the urologist, especially in large, hypervascular tumors. We experienced prenephrectomy therapeutic renal infarction by injecting Gel Foam and steel coils into the renal artery in 3 patients with renal tumor. This facilitated nephrectomy with decreased blood loss and we believe that this procedure contributes to the increase of survival rate of patients with renal tumor.
