Urologic Oncology: Seminars and Original Investigations, 04/25/2012Milojevic B et al.
Patients with previous history of non–muscle–invasive bladder cancer had a higher risk of having multifocal and upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) with higher tumor stages. History of bladder tumor was an independent predictor of bladder cancer recurrence but had no effect on non–bladder recurrence, and cancer–specific survival in patients who underwent surgical treatment of UTUC.
