[The surgical results in malignant bladder tumors using the Scalpel-1 carbon-dioxide laser].

Abstract

The authors present long-term results of surgical treatment with the use of CO2 laser of 104 patients suffering from bladder cancer stage T1-4 of different location. It is shown that high antiblastic effect of laser radiation results in reduced number of cancer recurrences, postoperative complications and lethal outcomes. Laser resection of the bladder wall with the tumor as deep as adventitious layer and paravesical fat ensures preservation of the organ on the one side and efficiency of surgery on the other side. Laser surgery of bladder cancer proved more effective than conventional methods, including transurethral resection.
