OBJECTIVES To evaluate the impact of hexaminolevulinate blue-light cystoscopy and transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT) upon the short-term recurrence rate in high-risk nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) compared with conventional cystoscopy and resection. METHODS Between December 2007 and November 2009, 446 patients were randomized for blue-light cystoscopy/resection and for standard cystoscopy/resection, respectively. The inclusion criteria consisted of positive urinary… CONTINUE READING
