Publisher Description

Author(s): Ilias Cagiannos, MD, FRCSC, Christopher Morash, MD, FRCSC Bladder cancer is the second most common urologic malignancy after prostate cancer.[sup.1] At the time of initial diagnosis, 19% of patients present with muscle-invasive disease.[sup.2] In the absence of distant metastatic disease, these patients are most commonly treated with radical cystectomy, pelvic lymphadenectomy and urinary diversion. A select few patients will undergo bladder-preserving protocols. Following treatment, patients can recur with local or metastatic disease as well as with the development of new urothelial tumours in the upper urinary tract or urethra. There is no clear consensus on the optimal schedule of post-treatment surveillance.
