Abstract

Study Type - Therapy (cohort) Level of Evidence 2b What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Apart from bladder tumour multiplicity, size, stage, grade and presence of cis, early recurrence following white light TURBT for new bladder tumours is also determined by surgeon experience, completeness of resection and presence or absence of detrusor muscle in the specimen. This study aims to validate surgeon experience and detrusor muscle as independent predictors of early recurrence following apparently complete white light TURBT in new bladder tumours.
