OBJECTIVE To develop a model that integrates the clinical and pathological information prior to radical cystectomy to increase the accuracy of current clinical stage in prediction of pathological stage in patients with bladder cancer (BC) using a modelling approach called principal component analysis (PCA). PATIENTS AND METHODS In a single-centre retrospective study, demographic and clinicopathological information of 1186 patients with clinically organ-confined (OC) BC was reviewed.
