MIYAOKA, Ricardo et al. Surgical management of retroperitoneal metastatic testicular tumor with inferior vena caval thrombus using cardiopulmonary bypass, arrested circulation, and profound hypothermia: a case report. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.9, pp.1032-1035. ISSN 0210-4806.

Testicular tumors represent the most common type of solid neoplasia in men aged between 18 and 35 years. Its cure rate is approximately 90%1,2. In some cases, tumoral vascular invasion can occur and demands surgical ressection to stop disease progression and prevent thromboembolic events. That is the only valuable therapeutic choice although it is a high risk procedure. We present a case report of a patient who underwent successful chemotherapy and surgery for a right-sided testicular tumor associated with an inferior vena cava tumor thrombus extending from the renal vein to the right atrium and extensive retroperitoneal lymph node disease.
