Management of invasive bladder cancer
In this short video James Catto, Professor in Urological Surgery at The University of Sheffield, discusses the management of invasive bladder cancer. Professor Catto was the Malcolm Coptcoat visiting professor at the Royal Society of Medicine on 16 March 2017. He points out that survival rates from bladder cancer have not improved over many years, and may even be getting worse, in spite of very considerable sums of money being spent on cystoscopic surveillance and BCG therapy. He proposes some rather radical solutions, such as avoiding transurethral tumour resection and earlier cystectomy, which can nowadays be achieved minimally invasively with robotic assistance.
