abstract

  • Upper tract urothelial carcinoma has characteristic patterns of lymph node metastases depending on the side and anatomical location of the primary tumor, including right-to-left migration and involvement of interaortocaval nodes in the setting of proximal disease. Standardized dissection templates should be prospectively evaluated in multicenter trials to assess morbidity and potential clinical benefit.
