RODRIGUEZ JASSO, V.H.; SERRANO BRAMBILA, E.  and  MALDONADO ALCARAZ, E.. Prognostic factors in localised and regionally advanced renal cell carcinoma. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.3, pp.320-324. ISSN 0210-4806.

In the last 10 years, several factors have been identified to confer a prognostic effect on renal cancer outcome. Pathologic stage, nuclear and histologic grade are the most frecuent studied and the most important at this moment. We evaluated those factors and introduced some others, looking for new parameters that could be useful. 96 cases of non methastatic renal cell cancer were included in our study. We found that as was mentioned by other authors pathologic and Furhman stage are the stronger prognostic factors but the presence of palpable tumor, pain and weight lost had significance too.

Keywords : Renal cancer; Prognostic factors.
