Role of immediate radical cystectomy in the treatment of patients with residual T1 bladder cancer on restaging transurethral resection
Carcinoma, Transitional Cell
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms
Because of the low number of events we cannot conclude whether RC offers a survival advantage in patients with residual T1 bladder cancer on re-TURBT. Since a quarter of patients had carcinoma invading bladder muscle, RC should be considered in these patients. A larger, preferably randomized, study with longer follow-up is needed.
