PURPOSE We studied prognostic factors for 5-year disease specific and recurrence-free survival in patients treated for upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Since July 1987, 72 patients with a mean age of 58.9 years have undergone nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision. Median followup was 62.2 months (range 6 to 192). Patient age, sex, detection duration and mode, bladder tumor history, smoking habit, stone disease history, and tumor stage, grade and… Expand
Upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma: is there a best?
TLDR
Female sex and a history of smoking were independent risk factors for bladder recurrence after NU and Invasive and higher grade UUT TCC was associated with worse local or systemic RFS. Expand
The impact factors on prognosis of patients with pT3 upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patients with pT3 disease with superficial parenchymal invasion should be considered to have lower stage disease, and that vascular involvement is the only independent prognostic factor for patients with P3 disease for disease-free and recurrence-free survival. Expand
Prognostic significance of non-muscle-invasive bladder tumor history in patients with upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma.
TLDR
Patients with previous history of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer had a higher risk of having multifocal and UTUC with higher tumor stages (pT3 or greater) and history of bladder tumor was an independent predictor of bladder cancer recurrence but had no effect on non-bladder recurrence, and cancer-specific survival in patients who underwent surgical treatment of UTUC.

Analysis of the Clinicopathological Characteristics of Patients with Upper Urinary Tract Transitional Cell Carcinoma
TLDR
The presence of metachronous bladder tumors is more often observed after the diagnosis of upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinomas, and patients with infiltrative and high-grade tumors developed metastases outside the urinary tract. Expand
Prognostic Factors in Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Upper Urinary Tract after Radical Nephroureterectomy
TLDR
The T stage and LVI are independent prognostic factors for recurrence-free and cancer-specific survival in patients with UUT-TCC treated by radical nephroureterectomy, helpful for guiding decisions about adjuvant therapies and the surveillance interval. Expand
The prognostic predictors of primary ureteral transitional cell carcinoma after radical nephroureterectomy.
TLDR
Advanced tumor and chronic renal disease stages were significantly associated with a worse prognosis in patients with primary ureteral transitional cell carcinoma who had undergone radical nephroureterectomy. Expand
Lymphovascular invasion and pT stage are prognostic factors in patients treated with radical nephroureterectomy for localized upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma.
TLDR
LVI and pT stage are significant prognostic factors for recurrence-free and cancer-specific survivals in patients with localized UUT-TCC and would be helpful for selecting patients who are appropriate for postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. Expand
The protective role of renal parenchyma as a barrier to local tumor spread of upper tract transitional cell carcinoma and its impact on patient survival.
PURPOSE We investigated whether tumor location has independent prognostic significance in upper tract transitional cell carcinoma cases and which factor determines it. MATERIALS AND METHODS WeExpand
[Large series of 114 cases with long-term follow-up of upper urinary tract urothelial tumors].
TLDR
It is demonstrated that histological grade and pathological stage constitute independent prognostic factors of tumor progression and cancer-specific survival in UUTUC. Expand
Prognostic factors for upper urinary tract urothelial carcinomas: stage, grade, and smoking status
TLDR
Presence of T2 and higher-stage tumors, high-grade tumors, and multifocality are combined risk factors for urinary bladder recurrence and distant organ metastasis and patients with the additional risk factors of cigarette smoking and nodal disease should be followed up closely after surgery. Expand

The impact of tumor location on prognosis of transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
TLDR
A radical surgical approach including meticulous lymphadenectomy may be therapeutic in patients with invasive ureteral TCC, which is associated with a higher local or distant failure rate than renal pelvis TCC. Expand
Bladder cancer as a prognostic factor for upper tract transitional cell carcinoma.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a history of BTCC (invasive or superficial) has an adverse effect on the prognosis of patients diagnosed with UTTCC independent of primary tumor stage. Expand
Previous history of bladder cancer as a prognostic factor for patients diagnosed with transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract
TLDR
This study evaluates whether prior history of bladder TCC (BTCC) is a prognostic factor for patients diagnosed with UTTCC, and analyzes possible prognostic predictors. Expand

TLDR
Primary tumor stage and surgical procedure performed (radical versus parenchymal sparing) are important predictors of disease recurrence and survival in patients treated for upper tract transitional cell carcinoma with extended follow-up. Expand
Time-related recurrence rates in patients with upper tract transitional cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Annual contrast medium imaging of the upper urinary tract is recommended in patients who have had multiple bladder tumors and in those who have undergone treatment forupper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma. Expand
Percutaneous nephroscopic management of upper urinary tract transitional cell carcinoma: recurrence and long-term followup.
TLDR
The percutaneous approach to renal urothelial tumor should be considered a valid option with a good long-term outcome and the prognostic factors related to recurrence should be evaluated. Expand
Transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract: prognostic variables and post-operative recurrences.
TLDR
Grade and stage of the primary tumour were the only predictive variables of the final outcome of transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract, and sex, bladder recurrences and site of primary tumours did not influence survival. Expand
The significance of lymphadenectomy in transitional cell carcinoma of the upper urinary tract.
TLDR
Lymphadenectomy may provide a therapeutic advantage in patients with upper urinary tract TCC and no lymph vessel invasion; however, patients with lymph vessel Invasion seem to have systemic disease; therefore, aggressive systemic adjuvant therapies rather than regional lymphadenectomy should be applied in these patients.

Tumors of the upper urinary tract: 10 years of experience.
TLDR
Of the patients 90% with cancer-related deaths had high grade tumors and of the 15 patients with positive lymph nodes 87% died of metastasis compared to 8% of the 50 patients with negative lymph nodes. Expand
13-year experience with percutaneous management of upper tract transitional cell carcinoma.
TLDR
Percutaneous management of upper tract transitional cell carcinoma is technically feasible and applicable in a significant number of patients in whom nephron sparing management is otherwise warranted and in carefully selected patients the results are at least comparable to other forms of "conservative" management in terms of tumor control and preservation of renal function.
