Infarcted Renal Cell Carcinoma Grossing Procedure
NEPHRECTOMY FOR INFARCTED RENAL CELL CARCINOMA
The Southwest Oncology group has established a protocol for the handling of renal cell carcinomas which have been therapeutically infarcted. For the grossing procedure and sections for histology, follow the steps in “Nephrectomy for Malignant Neoplasm”. When describing the tumor, give an estimate amount (%) of tumor which appears grossly infarcted. Make sure to take a photograph!
