INTRODUCTION: In advanced stage of renal carcinoma especially in right kidney because of proximity of inferior vena cava in most centers preoperative embolization of kidney is performed in purpose of facilitating surgery and reducing pre- and postoperative complications. In certain number of patients with indication for inoperability, complete embolization is performed in prevent complications like bleeding. After intervention, surgical nephrectomy can be performed. In patients with the absolute contraindication for the surgical treatment, embolization represents the treatment of choice. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Material for period of 7 years in Elbeck-Schoen Klinik and CCUS is presented in this paper. There were 72 patients, age range 3 to 92 years old, treated with 77 performed embolizations. Embolization was performed with PVA particles in order of achieving capillary embolization, while the principal trunk of renal artery was occluded with one or more coils until complete occlusion occurred. RESULTS: Patients were divided in two groups: group A consisted of patients with preoperatively performed embolization, and to patients in group B embolization was performed as form of palliative care. In all patients in group A procedure was a success, and in one patient from group B procedure was needed to be repeated several times. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: As it is known from medical history first embolization was performed by Almgard in 1973 with purpose in providing safer surgical treatment to patient. Nowadays, this procedure got its widespread use in interventional radiology. Our experiences indicate successfulness of this procedure in most cases in preoperative management as well as in palliative treatment of patient. Postembolization syndrome occurred in all patients after intervention has been performed, and was successfully treated with symptomatic therapy. More severe complications were sporadic. In conclusion it might be said that embolization of inoperative tumors may increase both survival rate and quality of patients life.
