Percutaneous cryoablation of a solitary, soft-tissue metastasis from renal cell carcinoma: a new local minimal invasive curative treatment


Cryoablation is a well-established treatment option, proven to be successful in treating local renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We treated a 67-year-old man in an outpatient setting with late onset of a 25 mm solitary soft-tissue metastasis of from RCC with cryoablation. The treatment was performed under sedation and in local anaesthesia. There were no complications during the procedure. The patient did not experience any adverse effects to the treatment. He was able to resume his normal daily routines the day after his treatment. A follow-up CT scan at 3, 8 and 12 months after treatment reported sufficient cryoablation and no sign of recurrence or other metastases.
