abstract

  • The average total node count for a primary RPLND by an experienced surgeon is approximately 50 nodes, with nearly half of the nodes originating in the paraaortic region. These results will be useful when assessing the adequacy of lymph node dissections for testis, renal, and upper tract urothelial malignancies.
