abstract

  • Non-familial bilateral RCC patients represent a distinct subpopulation of renal cancer patients with a good overall prognosis. Partial nephrectomy is an integral part of the surgical management. Although most bilateral tumors present synchronously, asynchronous lesions may occur many years after original nephrectomy, thus committing the patient to long-term follow-up.
