abstract

  • In patients with pT3N0/XM0 clear cell renal cell carcinoma positive vascular margins are associated with risk of disease progression. However, the risk of relapse associated with positive vascular margins is driven by the extent of vascular thrombus invasion. These findings suggest that the clinical significance of vascular margin status as currently defined in pT3 clear cell renal cell carcinoma is minimal.
