abstract

  • Predictors of distant recurrences, peritoneal carcinomatosis and extrapelvic lymph node metastases after robot-assisted radical cystectomy did not significantly differ and were mainly dictated by pathological tumor characteristics. Results suggest that the risk of atypical recurrence is chiefly influenced by tumor biology rather than surgical aspects.
