BACKGROUND The aim of this single-center study was to analyze factors predicting long-term outcomes following surgical resection of pulmonary metastases in patients with renal cell carcinoma. METHODS Two hundred two consecutive patients entered the study. Overall survival was analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier method. Multivariate analysis was performed using Cox regression models. RESULTS In 175 cases (87%), curative resection of the pulmonary metastases was achievable, with median survival of… CONTINUE READING
