There has been an improvement in the prognosis of the tumor thrombi invading the inferior vena cava (IVC) and the right atrium (RA) of the renal cell carcinoma with radical nephrectomy and tumor thrombectomy with the aid of a cardiopulmonary bypass. A 26 year old man was diagnosed with the right renal tumor with a tumor invading the right renal vein and the IVC above the right renal vein to the RA and right venticle. He was presented with dyspnea on the exertion, the ascites and the lower extremity edema due to IVC total obstruction. An acute hepatic failure occurred due to an obstruction of the hepatic vein.
