Ureteroscopic Management of Large ≥ 2cm Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma - A Comprehensive Twenty-three Year Experience

(Length of Discussion: 4 min)

An institutional database review of patients managed initially by a single urologist and followed over a 23-year period was performed by Scotland et al. This evaluation identified 80 patients with biopsy-proven low-grade Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma (UTUC) who had at least one lesion larger than 2 cm. Scotland and colleagues collected clinical data including demographics, operative parameters, and pathologic features. A standardized protocol of tumor ablation was followed and in this video, Logan Hubbard, BS demonstrates ablation of an approximately 4cm tumor.
