To validate the potential prognostic significance of preoperatively assessed inflammatory parameters leucocytosis, thrombocytosis and anemia in patients with non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We retrospectively evaluated a cohort comprising 736 consecutive patients with non-metastatic RCC, operated on between 2004 and 2012 with curative radical or partial nephrectomy at a single tertiary academic centre. Laboratory parameters were assessed within one week before surgical intervention. Patients were categorized using laboratory parameter cut-off values according to receiver operating characteristics (ROC) analyses. Cancer-specific survival (CSS) was assessed using the Kaplan-Meier method. To evaluate the potential prognostic significance of the preoperative laboratory parameters, multivariate Cox regression models were applied. Multivariable analysis identified preoperative thrombocytosis (≥285,000/μl) as an independent prognostic factor for CSS (Hazard ratio=2.28, 95% confidence interval=1.24-4.20, p=0.008). Regarding CSS, an elevated preoperative platelet count represented an independent prognostic factor of poor survival. Our findings strengthen the potential prognostic significance of preoperative thrombocytosis in patients with non-metastatic RCC.
