Treatment and survival of osseous renal cell carcinoma metastases
Journal of Surgical Oncology, 05/29/2012
Evenski A et al. – Improved pre–operative status, nephrectomy, and metachronous lesions had better overall survival. Wide resection results in decreased local recurrence and revision surgeries. However, it did not reliably predict improved survival. The recommendation is for individual evaluation of each patient with osseous renal cell carcinoma metastases. Wide excision may be used for resectable lesions to prevent local progression and subsequent surgeries.
