abstract

  • We found no difference in histopathologic features and outcomes between men and women treated with RNU for UTUC. Nevertheless, epidemiologic and mechanistic molecular studies should be encouraged to design, analyze, and report gender-specific associations to aid in our understanding of gender impact on UTUC incidence, progression, and metastasis.
