Treatment of human renal cell carcinoma with high-energy shock waves - a new in vivo/in vitro model

Roessler, W. ; Rothgangel, B. ; Hofstaedter, Ferdinand ; Wieland, W. F.


The effects of high-energy shock waves (HESW) on the human renal cell carcinoma were examined. The kidneys were available from 32 patients treated by radical nephrectomy due to renal cell carcinoma. Immediately after nephrectomy the kidneys were perfused with cold HTK solution and stored for a maximum of 4 h in hypothermia at 8 degrees C.
