Post-chemotherapy surgery in patients with unresectable or regionally metastatic bladder cancer
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Carcinoma, Transitional Cell
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms
Post-chemotherapy surgical resection of residual cancer may result in disease-free survival in some patients who would otherwise die of disease. Optimal candidates include those in whom the pre-chemotherapy sites of disease are restricted to the bladder and pelvis or regional lymph nodes, and who have a major response to chemotherapy.
