Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The records and pathological slides of 60 patients with ureteral cancer were reviewed with particular attention being paid to the tumor-adjacent mucosa. Mucosal abnormalities increased as grade and stage increased but their presence did not correlate with survival nor with the presence of urothelial tumors elsewhere, that is previous, concomitant and subsequent tumors. Patients with papillary and solid tumors survived equally well. Survival among patients with stage B tumors was better than that reported previously (82 per cent survived 5 years).
