Low Rate of Cancer Events After Partial Nephrectomy for Renal Cell Carcinoma: Clinicopathologic Analysis of 1994 Cases with Emphasis on Definition of “Recurrence”

Academic Article

After pathology review, 9 patients were found who truly developed a local recurrence. Positive surgical margin status was poorly related to the likelihood of a local recurrence.
