BACKGROUND The prognostic significance of venous involvement and tumour thrombus level in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains highly controversial. In 2010, the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the Union International Centre le Cancer (UICC) revised the RCC staging system (7th edition) based on tumour thrombus level, differentiating the T stage of tumours limited to renal-vein-only involvement. OBJECTIVE We aimed to evaluate the impact of tumour thrombus extension in a multi… Expand
