Wilms tumor, or nephroblastoma, is the most common primary malignant renal tumor of childhood. The excellent outcome now expected for most children with this tumor is attributed to the combination of effective adjuvant chemotherapy, improved surgical and anesthetic techniques and also the radiosensitivity of the tumor. The numerous organ systems are subject to the late effects of anticancer therapy. The aim of this study was to investigate the blood pressure profile and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and also cardiac diastolic functions and pulmonary venous flow in 25 children with unilateral Wilms tumor in remission.
