PURPOSE Although transurethral resection of the bladder tumor (TURBT) is still regarded as thegold standard for the treatment of clinical non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, alternative surgical options remain investigating. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of potassium- titanyl-phosphate (KTP) laser for the treatment of primary, clinically non-muscle invasive bladder cancer compared with standard transurethral resection of bladder tumor.
