Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare surgical treatments for non-invasive bladder tumor. Hundred and forty patients with non-invasive bladder tumor were studied. Seventy-three patients were treated by transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) and Repeated-Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (R-TURBT), while 67 by partial cystectomy. Operation time, blood loss, postoperative complications, and postoperative recurrence rate were better in the TURBT+R-TURBT group compared with the partial cystectomy group. Further, TURBT+R-TURBT offers advantages, such as simple surgical manipulation, less trauma, faster recovery, repeatedly performable procedure, and safety. In conclusion, this is an optimal therapy for treatment of non-invasive bladder tumor.
