abstract

  • Consistent with prior reports, our study suggests that increased BMI is associated with a better OS for patient with nonmetastatic ccRCC. Despite the high correlation between SFA and BMI, neither SFA nor VFA were significantly associated with tumour stage, grade, or OS in the current study; however, further studies in larger cohorts are required to validate this finding.
