Combining imaging and ureteroscopy variables in a preoperative multivariable model for prediction of muscleinvasive and non-organ confined disease in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms
We designed a preoperative prediction model for pT2+ and NOC-UTUC, based on readily available imaging and ureteroscopic grade. Further research is needed to determine whether use of this prediction model to select patients for conservative management vs RNU, neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and/or extended lymphadenectomy will improve patient outcomes.
