Objective: To retrospectively review the safety and efficacy of ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) of bilateral renal cell carcinomas (BRCCs). Patients and Methods: In this study, eight patients of BRCCs with 20 lesions seen from November 2012 to October 2018 were enrolled retrospectively. The patients were treated with US -guided percutaneous MWA and were followed up with contrast-enhanced US and computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Results: Technical success was achieved 20 tumors. The 18 lesions were performed to ablate 90%; 2 lesions were repeated because of detecting residual ablated tumor. Except six patients were noted fever, no severe complications occurred. The median follow-up time was 24 months (range 7–59 months). Among the eight patients, there was no local tumor recurrence in 6 of 8 completely ablated tumor lesions. One patient was retreated by MWA 6 months after ablation, and another was retreated after 19 months due to local tumor recurrence. No patients have obvious change of renal function and lost their life. Conclusion: US-guided percutaneous MWA is a beneficial treatment for BRCC.
