RIOS GONZALEZ, Emilio  and  MARTINEZ-PINEIRO LORENZO, Luís. Current role of lymphadenectomy and adrenalectomy in radical surgery for renal cancer. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.5, pp.562-568. ISSN 0210-4806.

Radical nephrectomy is the only curative treatment for renal cell cancer. Standard treatment includes ipsilateral adrenalectomy and lymph node dissection. In recent years, development of nephron-sparing surgery and early detection of small renal tumors has led to question this approach. The role of lymphadenectomy and adrenalectomy in surgical treatment of renal cancer is reviewed.

Keywords : Renal cell cancer; Lymphadenectomy; Adrenalectomy.
