UROwebinar: What treatment can be recommended in patients with local recurrence after partial nephrectomy

Partial nephrectomy is the recommended treatment of patients with localized nonmetastatic stage-T1 renal cell carcinoma. However, there remains a risk for local recurrence due to incomplete surgery despite the surgical technique used.

This risk may be due to surgical skills but will be aggravated by an aggressive tumour growth and microvascular invasion. It may also be due to multifocality. The preferred therapeutic option for local recurrence has not yet been defined. Treatment alternatives are repeat partial nephrectomy, ablative treatments while the most effective procedure might be complete nephrectomy. The goal is complete removal of the recurrent disease with negative margins and a durable tumour control.
