  1. In the stepwise multiple regression analysis, 3.2-10.5% α2 globulin, 66–288 U/l LDH, radical nephrectomy and complete resection of thrombus without metastasis in surgical category, <8.3-cm tumor size, and non-venous wall-invasive thrombus in RV/IVC wall invasion are coded as 1.
  2. Similarly, 10.6-22.3% α2 globulin, 289–1740 U/l LDH, radical nephrectomy and complete resection of thrombus with metastases that has undergone a cytoreductive surgery in surgical category, 8.5-27.0-cm tumor size, and venous wall-invasive thrombus in RV/IVC wall invasion are coded as 2.
  3. Radical nephrectomy and complete resection of thrombus with unresected metastases, radical nephrectomy and incomplete resection of thrombus regardless of metastatic status, and abandoned operation in surgical category are coded as 3, 4, and 5, respectively.
