CONCLUSION: The results of this study demonstrated no difference between the monopolar loop and PK Button in regard to overall complications; however, there was a higher rate of bladder perforation with monopolar TURBT. PK Button vaporization for bladder tumors represents a promising alternative to traditional monopolar TURBT without compromising short term (3 month) cancer recurrence rates.

Objective:To report and compare the peri-operative outcomes of patients undergoing open (ORC) and robotic-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) for bladder cancer performed with a radiofrequency seal and cut device (Caiman ®).Materials and Methods:Data of patients undergoing ORC or RARC between January 2015 and March 2016 at 6 Italian institutions were prospectively recorded and analyzed. Thirty-and 90-day complications were stratified according to the Martin's criteria and graded according to the Clavien-Dindo classification. Data on operative time, blood loss, transfusion rate, complications, and length of stay were eva...

Authors: Bălan GX, Geavlete PA, Georgescu DA, Ene CV, Bulai CA, Păunescu MA, Niculae A, Peride I, Lascăr I, Neagu TP, Geavlete BF Abstract The aim of the study was to observe similarities and differences regarding surgical safety and prognosis between en bloc bipolar resection and monopolar transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBTs) in medium size papillary non-muscle invasive bladder tumors (NMIBTs). A total of 90 patients with papillary bladder tumors presenting a diameter between 1 and 3 cm were equally divided and alternatively assigned for en bloc bipolar ablation (the study group) and conventional ...

The authors have published a valuable article that compares safety and efficacy between monopolar transurethral resection of bladder (mTURB) and bipolar (bTURB) for patients with primary nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer. They have found no evident advantages of bTURB over mTURB with respect to operation time, perioperative and postoperative complication rates, and recurrence rates at 12 months [1]. The mainstay for the diagnosis and initial treatment of bladder cancer is TURBT, aiming at reaching a definitive diagnosis and removing all visible lesions including a part of underlying muscle [2].

Discussion:TURBT is a relatively common urological operation performed to remove tumors of the bladder. Every measure should be taken to avoid serious complications from both anesthesia and surgery. Surgical measures to reduce the likelihood of an obturator jerk include reducing the diathermy current, avoiding over-distention bladder, and using bipolar diathermy as opposed to monopolar diathermy (although there is conficting evidence for this in the literature). Anesthetists should consider the use of neuromuscular blockade or an obturator nerve block to reduce the incidence of obturator jerk and risk of bladder perforatio...

Purpose of review Transurethral resection of bladder cancer (TURB) is the critical step in the management of nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). This review presents new improvements in the strategy and technique of TURB as well as in technological developments used for tumour visualization and removal. Recent findings The goal of TURB is to perform complete resection of NMIBC. Tumor visualization during procedure can be improved by enhanced optical technologies. Fluorescence-guided photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) and narrow-band imaging (NBI) used during TURB can improve tumour detection and potentially reduce re...
