Abstract

The 5 cm cut-off thus appears to best determine the clinical prognosis for patients undergoing tumor nephrectomy for early stage renal call cancer. Taking this into consideration, the present study clearly demonstrates the reed for a multivariate statistical approach when the current modification of the TNM classification system is critically reevaluated.
