BALLESTEROS SAMPOL, Juan José  y  FRANCES COMALAT, Albert. Asynchronic bilateral renal cell carcinoma: Radical and in situ hypothermia nephron sparing surgeries. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.4, pp.301-302. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: To present the double action a urologist has to consider in front of a Renal cell carcinoma (RCC); on one hand, when the normality of the contralateral kidney is stated and, on the other hand when, forced by the existence of the tumor in a solitary kidney, it is mandatory to perform a surgical technique to preserve renal function. Method: The case of a 43 year-old patient, diabetic who in 1982 underwent left radical nephrectomy for RCC diagnosed during a diagnostic work up for hypertension (HTA). Ten years later an upper pole renal tumor is found in the remaining kidney. Nephron-sparing surgery with in situ hypothermia was performed. Results: The patient died 18 years after the first surgery and 8 years after the second. Death was due to diabetic decompensation, haemorrhage from a gastric ulcer and "retroperitoneal mass probably pancreatic" that was not characterized. Conclusions: The PSA decline, the histology of the prostate during the adenomectomy and the morpho-metric changes after surgery and at mid-term, advise a more accurate value of PSA in patients who underwent open surgery, in order to detect a carcinoma in the residual prostate gland.
