Upper urinary tract urothelial cancer (UTUC) may have unique etiologic and genomic factors compared to bladder cancer.
To characterize the genomic landscape of UTUC and provide insights into its biology using comprehensive integrated genomic analyses.
Background: Application of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) in urological oncology was relatively slowly due to the urinary elimination of 18F-FDG. We investigated whether delayed post-diuretic 18F-FDG PET/CT could be used for diagnosing renal pelvic cancer.
The prediction of extraurothelial recurrence (EUR) before radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) is difficult for patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma. If EUR can be predicted preoperatively, it may be possible to determine the need for neoadjuvant chemotherapy or the surgical strategy.
Metastatic renal cancers are relatively common. Most are metastases to the renal parenchyma via a hematogenous route and are derived from lung, breast, and gastrointestinal cancer, malignant melanoma, and hematologic malignant cancer.
