INTRODUCTION Surgery for renal cell carcinoma with tumor thrombus has a high potential morbidity rate, and the current classification system based on proximal tumor thrombus level (TTL) has not been shown to consistently predict outcomes. AIM To assess the prognostic value of inferior vena cava tumor thrombus volume (IVC-TV) for determining the perioperative complications as well as with survival end points. METHODS From June 2001 to June 2012, we identified 147 patients who underwent… CONTINUE READING
