The by-pass technique with controlled cardiac arrest and hypothermia is probably the best method for an extirpation of intracava tumoral thrombi in renal tumours. The technique is easy to perform, represents a great help in the extirpation of thrombi regardless their size and location, and avoids massive bleeding.
