Focal Tumour Ablation for Renal Cell Carcinomaenglish
The objective of this evidence review was to determine the effectiveness of focal tumour ablation, including radiofrequency ablation (RFA), microwave ablation (MWA), and cryoablation therapy (CAT) for the treatment of patients with localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) by providing a systematic literature review that will be one of the six components of the Recommendation Report being developed by the Interventional Oncology Steering Committee. The additional components to their report are demand forecasting, costing analysis, jurisdictional review, system capacity, and current state.
Patients with localized, non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
Intended Guideline Users
Interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, urological surgeons, medical oncologists, and healthcare professionals caring for patients with RCC.
- What is the effectiveness of focal ablation for the treatment of patients with RCC?
- What are the toxicities associated with focal ablation for RCC?
- What patient populations are most likely to benefit from focal ablation for RCC?
