abstract

  • •Patients achieving pT0 status after receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy had no evidence of lymph node involvement at cystectomy. •Patients undergoing definitive chemotherapy for advanced disease followed by cystectomy experienced reduced rates of nodal involvement compared to the lymph node-positive rates predicted by preoperative clinical staging. However, there remains a risk of regional lymph node involvement in this group.
