abstract

  • Using the AJCC 2010 staging criteria we validated pathological stage T3a as a poor prognostic factor in renal cell carcinoma regardless of tumor size. Our results also demonstrated an increased rate of risk of recurrence with perinephric fat invasion. Given this increased risk of recurrence, even in tumors less than 4 cm, closer surveillance is warranted in such cases and the role of perinephric involvement necessitates further investigation.
