Abstract

Technological advances in imaging as well as increased knowledge of tumor-specific biology have promoted the role of organ-sparing approaches to pediatric renal and testicular tumors. Application of these techniques continues to evolve as data on long-term follow-up become available and as protocol-guided investigation provides answers to therapeutic outcomes of these approaches. Optimally, organ-sparing surgery will continue to provide increased potential for preservation of both renal function and fertility.
