A clinicopathological evaluation of prognostic factors of urothelial tumors of the renal pelvis and ureter



A clinicopathological evaluation of prognostic factors of urothelial tumors of the renal pelvis and ureter



Hinyokika Kiyo. Acta Urologica Japonica 47(4): 237-240



We investigated the clinicopathological features of 109 patients with urothelial tumors of the renal pelvis and ureter who underwent surgery at four institute from April, 1975 to September, 1997. The patients consisted of 71 males and 38 females, and the mean age was 66.8 years, ranging from 41 to 92 years. Mean followup period was 43 months. The prognostic significance of the pathological factors; pT, Grade, INF, tumor size, pL, pV and pN were evaluated. All these factors affected the survival rates significantly in univariate analysis. Multivariate analysis showed the most influential prognostic factors to be pT and pN.
