Author information

  • 1University Hospital, CHU du Sart Tilman, Liège, Belgium.


A review of 20 cases of conservative surgery for urothelial tumors of the upper tract is presented. The morbidity is limited; the recurrence rate is around 15% in the ipsilateral urinary tract with a mean follow up of 41 months. Conservative surgery does not seem to carry a higher fatal risk as compared to more radical surgery. It has indications in some cases which are defined.
