PURPOSE To determine the relative risk (RR) of upper-tract tumors (UTT) after bladder cancer, stratified by bladder tumor characteristics, demographic factors, and follow-up duration, in order to develop an improved risk-based surveillance strategy. PATIENTS AND METHODS The 1973 to 1996 Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was used to determine the observed and expected number of UTT after bladder cancer. The RR with 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated… CONTINUE READING
