BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Renal cryoablation is a successful nephron-sparing treatment alternative for selected patients with small renal tumors. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of the number of freeze cycles (one v two) and the thaw process (active v passive) on renal tissue following cryodestruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen female mongrel dogs (19.9 +/- 2.1 kg) were randomly divided into four groups and underwent transabdominal laparoscopic access by standard… CONTINUE READING
