Bladder Cancer

Comparison of quality of urinary bladder filling in CT urography with different doses of furosemide in the work-up of patients with macroscopic hematuria.

The protocol for preparation of computed tomography urography (CTU) examinations at our hospital was changed in 2013 to improve the quality of urinary bladder filling in the excretory phase. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of urinary bladder filling on CTU after different doses of furosemide were administered to patients with macroscopic hematuria.

Increase in Circulating Tumor Cells in Invasive Bladder Cancer After Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor.

The present research was performed to clarify the differences in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) counts between non-muscle-invasive (NMIBC) and muscle-invasive (MIBC) bladder cancer following transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT).

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy before radical cystectomy: why we must adhere?

To provide a critical literature review on state of the art and novel strategies in the field of neoadjuvant treatments for muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC).

a nonsystematic literature review was performed using PubMed, Scopus and Clinical Trials.

Comparison of the performance of ADXBLADDER test and urinary Cytology in the follow up of Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer: a blinded prospective multicentric study.

The objective of the study was to directly compare the performance of ADXBLADDER and cytology in the detection of NMIBC recurrences.

ADXBLADDER is a urine test based upon the detection of MCM5, a DNA licensing factor expressed in all cells capable of dividing.

Radical Cystectomy and Perioperative Sexual Function: A Cross-Sectional Analysis.

Cancer-related changes in sexual function (SF) negatively impact quality of life and intimate partner relationships. There is a lack of data regarding SF among patients who underwent radical cystectomy (RC).

Impact of chronic kidney disease on oncological outcomes in patients with high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer who underwent adjuvant bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy.

To investigate the impact of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on oncological outcomes in patients with high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) who underwent adjuvant induction bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy after transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT).

Partitioning of time trends in prevalence and mortality of bladder cancer in the United States.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the relative contributions of incidence, stage-specific relative survival, and stage ascertainment to changes in bladder cancer (BC) prevalence and incidence-based mortality.

Bioinformatic identification of prognostic indicators in bladder cancer.

Aim: Bladder cancer (BC) is one of the most common malignancies with poor prognosis. We aimed to identify a genetic signature for predicting the prognosis of BC. Materials & methods: Kaplan-Meier survival and Cox regression analyses were used to construct a prognostic signature using data from The Cancer Genome Atlas.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy in the Management of Oligometastatic and Oligoprogressive Bladder Cancer and Other Urothelial Malignancies.

Bladder cancer represents the most common type of urothelial carcinoma, with a median overall survival of 12.5-15 months in the case of metastatic disease. We evaluated the role of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in the management oligometastatic urothelial cancer.

Role of Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Squamous Variant Histology in Urothelial Bladder Cancer: Does Presence and Percentage Matter?

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) on squamous variant (SV) bladder cancer by investigating patients presenting with SV histology at the time of transurethral resection (TUR), stratified by their receipt of NACT.
