Translated title of the contribution: Value of lymph node dissection for renal cell carcinoma

I. Matuschek, A. S. Merseburger, M. A. Kuczyk


There are as yet no common standards regarding lymph node dissection during tumor nephrectomy. In order to assess prognoses and survival rates and ensure early detection of kidney tumors, a pathohistological staging following lymphadenopathy and new adjuvant therapies in metastatic disease have to be established in the future. The aims of lymph node dissection are - as far as the morbidity and performance status of the patient are concerned - accurate staging and a decrease in risk of tumor recurrence, particularly in organ-confined cancer disease.
