PURPOSE: To review surgical management, tumour stage and clinical outcomes in children with intravascular extension of Wilms tumour (WT) registered in a national clinical study (2012-19).

METHODS: WTs with presence/suspicion of tumour thrombus in the renal vein (RV) or beyond on radiology, surgery or pathology case report forms were identified. Only cases where thrombus was confirmed by surgeon and/or reference pathologist were included. Surgical management, disease stage, overall (OS) and event free survival (EFS) were investigated.

RESULTS: 69/583 (11.8%) patients met the inclusion criteria. Forty-six (67%) had abdominal stage III due to thrombus-related reasons: 11 had macroscopically incomplete resection, including 8 cases where cavotomy was not performed; 20 had piecemeal complete resection of thrombus; 15 had microscopically positive resection margins at the RV. 66% of tumour thrombi contained viable tumour. There were eight relapses and five deaths. EFS, but not OS, was significantly associated with completeness of surgical resection (P<0.05). OS and EFS were also significantly associated with histological risk group (P<0.05) but not with viability of tumour thrombus (P=0.19; P=0.59).

CONCLUSIONS: WTs with intravascular extension have a high risk of local stage III due to thrombus-related reasons. Controlled complete removal of the thrombus should be the aim of surgery.
