Abstract

Renal carcinoma extending into the inferior vena cava can be excised with a good early-term and long-term prognosis. Cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest are used to resect intracardiac extension of the tumor. We propose antegrade selective cerebral and cardiac perfusion associated with systemic circulatory arrest to protect the brain and the abdominal viscera while obtaining a bloodless surgical field for tumor thrombus removal.
