From the Desk of the Editor: Volume 4, Issue 1

Welcome to the current issue of Everyday Urology – Oncology Insights. We begin this issue with our cover story: “Optimizing TURBT and Optical Diagnostics in Bladder Cancer,” authored by Ashish Kamat, MD. Dr. Kamat discusses the crucial importance of performing the optimal TURBT. This is the essential first step in managing newly diagnosed and recurrent bladder cancer, ultimately impacting potential multidisciplinary therapies, for both advanced disease and high risk NMIBC. While transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT) remains the gold standard ‘first step’ in bladder cancer management (both diagnosis and tumor removal), there can be a high rate of residual tumor left behind after TURBT. He details tips to optimize TURBT as well as a checklist of processes for consideration of prognostic factors.
