We evaluated site of distant metastasis by renal cell carcinoma histological subtype. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 910 patients treated with radical nephrectomy for clear cell, papillary or chromophobe renal cell carcinoma at the Mayo Clinic between 1970 and 2000 who had distant metastasis at nephrectomy or who had metastasis… CONTINUE READING
