Kidney cryoablation: looking for the right path of collaboration

How urologists and IRs should collaborate for the benefit of the patient

June 29, 2023, 17:00-18:00 CEST

Renal cancer is responsible for 3-5% of adult neoplasms; while established surgical therapies such as radical or partial nephrectomy are invaluable to the treatment of kidney cancer, percutaneous ablative techniques represent a highly advantageous, nephron-sparing alternative.

Our upcoming webinar on kidney cryoablation seeks to highlight not only the marked benefits of percutaneous ablative techniques on renal tumours but also to shed light on the importance of cooperation between the fields of urology and interventional radiology. This webinar will explore how a collaborative, individually tailored approach to renal cell carcinoma can render innovative and highly positive therapeutical outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To increase the collaboration within the urologist and interventional radiologist community.
  2. To provide literature data that can be used in MDT meetings.
  3. To discuss details on how to start and build RCC practice.
