Residual tumor resection (RTR)

Residual tumor resection (RTR) Residual tumor resection in patients with advanced testicular tumor plays a vital role in the multimodal treatment. Treatment indications for residual tumor resection have changed over the last two decades. While patients with advanced seminoma after chemotherapy or radiotherapy rarely need surgery, it is mandatory for most non-seminomatous tumor patients to undergo post-chemotherapy tumor resection. Due to adjunctive surgical procedures, the operation is surgically demanding and should be performed only in specialized high-volume referral centers. Additional surgical procedures such as nephrectomy, partial colectomy or vascular interventions including caval and aortic resection with grafting might be required. Consequently, several complications can be seen in the peri- and postoperative course. We aim to describe indications for residual tumor resection, operative technique, including adjunctive surgeries and the most common peri- and postoperative complications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png World Journal of Urology Springer Journals

Abstract

Residual tumor resection in patients with advanced testicular tumor plays a vital role in the multimodal treatment. Treatment indications for residual tumor resection have changed over the last two decades. While patients with advanced seminoma after chemotherapy or radiotherapy rarely need surgery, it is mandatory for most non-seminomatous tumor patients to undergo post-chemotherapy tumor resection. Due to adjunctive surgical procedures, the operation is surgically demanding and should be performed only in specialized high-volume referral centers. Additional surgical procedures such as nephrectomy, partial colectomy or vascular interventions including caval and aortic resection with grafting might be required. Consequently, several complications can be seen in the peri- and postoperative course. We aim to describe indications for residual tumor resection, operative technique, including adjunctive surgeries and the most common peri- and postoperative complications.
