OBJECTIVE To evaluate precystectomy prediction of pT and pN stages at cystectomy. METHODS Multivariate logistic regression analyses modelled variables of 726 evaluable patients treated with radical cystectomy and bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy. The first set of models predicted pT(3-4) stage at cystectomy, and the second set predicted pN(1-3) stages at cystectomy. Transurethral resection (TUR) predictors consisted of 2002 T stage, 1973 WHO tumour grade, presence of carcinoma in situ, age… CONTINUE READING
