abstract

  • We confirmed the poor yet variable outcomes of patients with disease recurrence after RNU. While the Bajorin criteria seem to have limited prognostic value in this specific cohort, we found several other clinical variables to be associated with worse cancer-specific mortality. If validated, these factors should be taken into consideration for clinical trial design.
