The literature concerning embolization of the renal artery in patients with renal cell carcinoma is reviewed. Based on this review it is concluded that the method is useful in this patient group as it will facilitate the surgical procedure if nephrectomy is performed afterwards. Used as a palliative method, embolization reduces haematuria. It was not possible to draw conclusions concerning survival rates or eventual immuno-stimulating effects of embolization.
