BACKGROUND Observational studies suggest a proportion of patients with lymph node metastases will benefit from lymph node dissection (LND) at the time of nephrectomy for clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC). OBJECTIVE Our aim was to report the performance of five previously identified high-risk pathologic features assessed by intraoperative examination on prediction of lymph node metastases and propose a template for LND based on locations of lymph node involvement. DESIGN, SETTING, AND… CONTINUE READING
