Prognostic factors predicting treatment response

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This study demonstrated that the anatomic distribution of disease in the patient with renal adenocarcinoma is the single most important factor in predicting the impact of surgical intervention. Ninety-six patients underwent radical nephrectomy for control of renal adenocarcinoma. The survival in this patient population was dependent upon whether the disease was confined to the primary organ of origin or whether it had extended outside the primary organ site. Survivals greater than 90 percent in ten years were experienced for patients with organ confined disease irrespective of the cell type. © 1984 Springer-Verlag.
