Several parameters have been proposed to predict prognosis in renal cell carcinomas. Although the tumor grade is an important prognostic data in the RCC, there is a low correlation between the observers. The aim of this study was to establish a new grading system based on the combination of different tumor grades in the tumor and the resulting data show the relationship with parameters that are prognostic significance. 185 cases of clear cell RCC treated between 2000 and 2013 were included in th...
