Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Current surgical management of retroperitoneal masses involving major vessels now includes complete en bloc resection with in situ venous, arterial, or combined reconstruction. No studies have investigated preresection arterial bypass for continuous lower extremity perfusion during definitive resection. Here, we characterize and compare the outcomes of surgery for retroperitoneal masses with major vascular involvement by a two-stage approach (femoral-femoral bypass preceding resection) and the traditional one-stage approach (consecutive resection and in situ vascular reconstruction).

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent resection of retroperitoneal masses and reconstruction of major arterial or venous structures from 2004 to 2016. Outcomes were compared with unpaired t-tests, chi-squared tests, and Kaplan-Meier analysis.

RESULTS:

Eight patients underwent a two-stage procedure, and seven underwent a one-stage procedure for retroperitoneal masses with vascular involvement. Mean (±SD) oncologic resection time (443 ± 215 versus 648 ± 128 min, P = 0.047) and postoperative ICU stay (0.9 ± 1.3 versus 4.4 ± 2.9 d, P = 0.018) were significantly shorter for the two-stage approach.

CONCLUSIONS:

To our knowledge, this is the first report of a two-stage approach for resection of retroperitoneal masses with major vessel involvement. Femoral-femoral arterial bypass before definitive resection could be a viable option for improving intraoperative vascular control and decreasing perioperative complications in these complex procedures.
