Treatment of localised RCC


Whenever technically feasible, nephron-sparing surgery is the standard procedure for solitary renal tumours up to a diameter of 7 cm. GR A

A minimal tumour-free surgical margin following partial resection of RCC is sufficient to avoid local recurrence. GR B

There is an increased risk of intrarenal recurrences in larger-size (> 7 cm) tumours treated with nephron-sparing surgery, or when there is a positive margin. Follow-up should be intensified in these patients. GR C
