ABSTRACT
Purpose: The application of the second transurethral resection (TUR) in patients with noninvasive bladder tumor is a current topic because the residual tumor may remain after TUR. In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of the secondary TUR in the bladder cancers with non-invasive superficial transitional-celled, which was carried out 4 to 6 weeks after the first TUR. Materials and methods: The data of 55 patients who were diagnosed with bladder tumor between August 2003 and April 2010 and who accepted the second TUR 4 to 6 weeks after the first TUR and who were applied the second TUR were retrospectively reviewed. Results: Residual tumor was determined in 21 out of 55 cases(38%). In the histopathological evaluation which was carried out after the second TUR in our patients,3.6% advanced stage and 10.8% lower stage were detected. Residual tumor was determined in 21 out of 55 cases(38%). In the histopathological evaluation which was carried out after the second TUR in our patients, 3.6% advanced stage and 10.8% lower stage were detected. In the second TUR in patients whom the residual tumor was detected, it was found out that the diameters of the primary tumor before the first TUR were big and the primary tumor was with multiple focus. Conclusions: For the determination of the appropriate treatment of the algorithm in patients with non-invasive bladder tumor, it was shown n this study that the second TUR provided better evaluation of clinical stage and the detection of residual tumor.
