AIM OF THE STUDY To assess the impact of perioperative platelet count (PLT) kinetics on recurrence-free survival (RFS) after radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). METHODS From three prospectively maintained databases of three tertiary care centres a total of 269 patients undergoing RNU without perioperative treatment between 1996 and 2011 were considered for this analysis. Pre- and postoperatively elevated PLT count was defined as >400×10(9)/L. PLT… CONTINUE READING
