Abstract

Tumor size did not have a significant influence on cancer specific survival in pT2 tumors, neither continuously applied nor based on various cutoff values. To enhance prognostic discrimination, multifactorial staging systems including pathological features should be implemented. The prognostic relevance of the variable subsuming Fuhrman grade and collecting system invasion should be considered for future evaluation.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
