abstract

  • The overall quality of pathologic examination of radical cystectomy specimens is high. Better reporting of soft tissue margin status and pelvic lymph node counts is needed to achieve compliance with the standards published by evolving practice protocols. Standardized pathologic evaluation and reporting of radical cystectomy specimens will optimize important prognostic information and foster better communication between the pathologist, surgeon, and interested oncologists to benefit patients.
