Dr. François Varlet reflected on the laparoscopic management of Wilms’ tumors. The framework of existing possibilities to perform such interventions is extremely limited and would concern 5 to 10% of patients that we currently manage. Dr. François Varlet has undertaken a prospective study on a national scale, in France, and he supervises every proposal for laparoscopic surgery to manage Wilms’ tumors. The rigorous and thorough nature of his work, the caution he takes in his work are truly outstanding. In France, any proposal for a laparoscopic surgery to manage nephroblastoma will be discussed at national level, and the intraoperative conditions and long-term follow-up are meticulously reported, in the framework of the prospective study undertaken by François Varlet.
