Moreover, cranial extension of the tumor thrombus into the vena cava is reported to be associated with a higher probability of metastatic spread. Complete removal of the tumor thrombus in patients without other prognostic factors is associated with 5-year cause-specific survival rates of 47–68%. Survival rates dramatically decrease in the patients with positive lymph nodes or distant metastases to figures lower than 20%. An additional negative prognostic factor in this stage of the disease is the infiltration of the venous wall by the neoplastic thrombus.

The wide variability of the reported data could be explained in several ways. First of all, many authors pointed out the moderate interobserver reproducibility of the Fuhrman nuclear grading system. Lanigan et al were the first to analyze the level of agreement among four pathologists assigning renal cell carcinoma grades according to four different systems (Arner, Skinner, Syrjanen-Hjelt, and Fuhrman systems). 181 In the larger study in the field, Lohse et al compared original nuclear grades assigned at the moment of the initial pathologic diagnosis to the standardized grades reassigned after slide review of more than 2000 cases at the Mayo Clinic.
