abstract

  • Urine cytology may have a valuable role for detecting upper tract recurrence after radical cystectomy. Most patients with positive cytology after radical cystectomy eventually have radiological evidence of urothelial recurrence. These data may help clarify natural history in patients with positive cytology after radical cystectomy. Additionally, these data indicate the need for diligent evaluation for recurrent disease and potentially the role of early adjuvant therapy in patients with positive cytology after radical cystectomy.
