Abstract

Renal tumor embolization has many advantages which are summarized in Table 1. Embolization alone does not affect paraneoplastic manifestations (1) and any immunological advantages are still hypothetical. Embolization destroys normal kidney tissue but induces little or no histological change in the tumor itself.
