Abstract

Our long-term experience confirms that of other investigators that nonmetastatic RCC with extension into the IVC is a potentially curable condition provided complete removal can be achieved. The level of extension of the tumor thrombus dictates the surgical techniques used for successful removal of the tumor thrombus. The treatment of patients with caval involvement and metastatic disease at presentation needs to be carefully individualized. Those with extensive multiorgan metastases continued to do poorly irrespective of the therapeutic approach chosen.
