    Top 5 bladder cancer articles of 2017

    A look at Urology Times' most-read articles on bladder cancer reveals a variety of topics, ranging from radical cystectomy to the role of protein- and cell-based urinary biomarkers for bladder cancer detection and surveillance. As part of our review of 2017, these are our top 5 most-read articles on bladder cancer:

    Radical cystectomy for bladder cancer: Tools vs. technique

    Robert Abouassaly, MD, MS, discusses important principles of radical cystectomy, whether performed using the open, laparoscopic, or robotic approach. Read more

    Novel bladder Ca agent shows promise in phase II trial

    An investigatory bladder cancer agent was associated with a 12-month high-grade recurrence-free survival of 35% for patients with Ta/T1 disease, researchers reported. Read more

    Robotic vs. open cystectomy: How PFS, OS compare

    Evaluation of upper tract surveillance for high-grade NMIBC and evidence that androgen receptor activity may be related to recurrence of bladder cancer were among other take-home messages from AUA 2017. Read more

    Bladder cancer test shows high sensitivity

    The noninvasive molecular test for detecting recurrent urothelial carcinoma also demonstrates high negative predictive value in a prospective study. Read more

    Biomarkers for bladder cancer: Current and future

    The role of protein- and cell-based urinary biomarkers for bladder cancer detection and surveillance is controversial, and in 2017 these assays have yet to come into widespread use among urologists. Their uptake is expected to increase, however, considering that the American Urological Association/Society of Urologic Oncology “Guideline on Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer” that was released in 2016 identifies situations for using urinary biomarkers, according to Badrinath R. Konety, MD. Read more
