BACKGROUND An algorithm was created to predict pathologic stage in patients with clinically organ-confined muscle-invasive bladder cancer. METHODS The sample consisted of 133 consecutive patients scheduled to undergo cystectomy. To develop a tool to predict nonorgan-confined disease before surgery, principal component analysis (PCA) was applied. Patients were stratified into a training set (n = 89) and a validation set (n = 44), and 7 parameters were evaluated: levels of carcinoembryonic… CONTINUE READING
