Abstract

Although the incidence of localized renal cell carcinoma has increased in recent decades due to greater use of imaging, the treatment has shifted to less invasive, nephron-sparing approaches. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is one accepted treatment modality for patients with small renal masses, and it has the advantage of being minimally invasive and highly nephron sparing, with the additional benefits of reduced blood loss and complication rates. We describe our experience with RFA with an accompanying instructional video outlining the procedure's key components.
