A population-based competing-risks analysis of the survival of patients treated with radical cystectomy for bladder cancer
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms
The current study provides a valuable graphical aid for prediction of cancer-specific and other-cause mortality according to disease stage and patient age. It can help clinicians to better stratify the risk-benefit ratio of radical cystectomy. Hopefully, these findings will be considered in treatment decision making and during informed consent before radical cystectomy.
