PURPOSE Followup after radio frequency ablation and cryotherapy for small renal lesions lacks pathological analysis. The definition of successful tumor ablation has been the absence of contrast enhancement on posttreatment magnetic resonance imaging or computerized tomography. We hypothesized that adding post-ablation kidney biopsy would help confirm treatment success. MATERIALS AND METHODS From April 2002 to March 2006 a total of 109 renal lesions in 88 patients were ablated with… CONTINUE READING
