Contralateral tumor seeding of renal cell carcinoma mimicking late metastasis of liver after laparoscopic nephrectomy: A case report with review of the literature
AbstractLaparoscopic surgery has been increasingly used every day in the management of urologic malignancies. Even though it seems as a minimally invasive surgery, during these interventions tumor seeding, as seen in open surgery, confronts us as a rarely seen serious risk. Herein, we have reported a case who demonstrated peritoneal tumor implantation at 12 month postoperative follow up after laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) performed for Furhman grade 1 (T2N0M0) renal cell cancer.
