A 58-year-old male patient was scheduled for the surgical removal of a cavoatrial thrombus and renal tumors during cardiopulmonary bypass without circulatory arrest. Throughout the operation, continuous monitoring for pulmonary embolism was carried out by transesophageal echocardiography. A multidisciplinary team including anesthetists, urologists, and cardiovascular and gastrointestinal surgeons performed the operation successfully. This case report highlights the importance of anesthetic management in renal-cell carcinoma patients with a cavoatrial thrombus.
