BACKGROUND Controversy exists over the most important prognostic factors in T1 high-grade non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) patients treated with bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). OBJECTIVE Evaluate prognostic factors for recurrence, progression, and disease-specific mortality after adjuvant intravesical BCG immunotherapy in patients with T1G3(More)
Studer's ortothopic neobladder after radical cistectomy has become a good alternative and has improved the patients' quality of life. Voiding dysfunction after surgery is one of the possible late complications with incomplete emptying of the neobladder and chronical urinary retention. The mechanical obstruction may be due to recurrence of the tumor,(More)
PURPOSE Nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is a challenging disease to manage primarily due to its varied clinical course. The management of NMIBC has witnessed a widespread change with respect to its diagnosis and treatment. Although transurethral resection (TUR) and adjuvant bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) stills remain the cornerstone, newer(More)
UNLABELLED Adjuvant intravesical bacillus Calmette- Guérin (BCG) therapy is the standard conservative adjuvant treatment and the most effective regimen for patients with high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The term "BCG failure" is generally used to refer to recurrence or progression following BCG therapy, as experienced by many patients.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risk of long-term tumor recurrence and progression in patients with low- and intermediate-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancers, which could facilitate optimization in the follow-up schedules. MATERIALS AND METHODS A single-institution, retrospective analysis of 704 patients with primary TaG1, TaG2, T1G1, and T1G2 urothelial(More)
