Lymph node density affects cancer-specific survival in patients with lymph node-positive urothelial bladder cancer following radical cystectomy.

BACKGROUND The prognosis for patients with lymph node (LN)-positive bladder cancer (BCa) is likely affected by the extent of lymphadenectomy in radical cystectomy (RC) cases. Specifically, the prognostic significance of the LN density (ratio of positive LNs to the total number removed) has been demonstrated. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic signature… CONTINUE READING
