Partial cystectomy in patients with invasive bladder cancer: is it a good option?
To investigate the long-term cumulative incidence of chronic urinary retention (CUR) after radical cystectomy (RC) and orthotopic neobladder (ONB) in women and the possible risk factors.
We retrospectively analyzed a prospectively evaluated cohort of women for whom RC and ONB were performed.
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (UroToday.com) - Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) offers a survival benefit to patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC).

Bladder cancer (BCa) is a disease of the elderly and as the population is aging, BCa will become an even bigger public health challenge in the future. Nowadays the correct management of BCa in the elderly remains controversial.
Recently, intraoperative use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has been demonstrated to be associated with improved outcomes after surgery for several cancers; however, the effect of intraoperative NSAIDs use on bladder cancer (BCa) is not known.
Patients after radical cystectomy (RC) frequently complain about bowel disorders (BDs). Reports addressing related long-term complications are sparse. This cross-sectional study assessed changes in bowel habits (BH) after RC.
Locally advanced (T3b, T4 and N1-N3) and metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (BCa) is a lethal disease with poor survival outcomes. Combination chemotherapy remains the treatment of choice in patients with metastatic disease and an important part of treatment in addition to radical cystectomy (RC) in patients with locally advanced tumour.
BACKGROUND:Radical cystectomy (RC) with pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) is the standard of care for high-risk non-muscle-invasive and muscle-invasive bladder cancer (BCa).
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Radical cystectomy (RC), followed by urinary diversion or reconstruction, is a standard treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
