Over the past few decades, there has been a growing awareness of both the oncologic and quality of life consequences of bladder cancer diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance. Although many urinary markers for bladder cancer have now been approved by the FDA, there is not enough evidence to support replacing surveillance cystoscopy with any given marker. The treatment of bladder cancer mainly includes surgery (transurethral resection of bladder tumors [TURBt] and radical cystectomy), immunotherapy, chemotherapy (adjuvant chemotherapy and neoadjuvant chemotherapy), radiotherapy, targeted therapy, and other methods. In patients undergoing cystectomy, reports of approaches using more standardized measures of complications have demonstrated high rates of postoperative morbidity and mortality, particularly in elderly individuals. The robot-assisted technique is now being more widely studied as a potential approach to decrease operative blood loss and shorten recovery. Despite level I evidence supporting the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, there remains disagreement regarding its use over selective adjuvant therapy, given the modestbenefits seen with current regimens. Therefore, discussion to resolve the controversy regarding the diagnosis and treatment of BC is urgently needed.
This book covers a wide range of knowledge and includes many topics within urology. It has been informed by the collected opinions of urology experts from all over the world. It contains not only the consensus concerning the latest progress in the diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer, but also other more controversial issues. We believe this publication provides a valuable summary ofthe important research in this field and can help promote clinical novelty by enlightening and provoking the thoughts of our readers.
