To date, fluorescence and narrow band imaging cystoscopy have been tested in many prospective within patient trials but only as an "add on" procedure. This results in a bias that does not allow to determine the real impact of such innovative technologies on bladder cancer management. Hereby we propose the first prospective randomized trial which compares narrow band imaging trans urethral resection as a stand alone procedure versus white light transurethral resection. The primary end point is to assess the recurrence rate of bladder cancer lesions with each treatment modality. The study is designed to disclose an inferior recurrence rate (estimated 10%) in the group treated by narrow band imaging transurethral resection respect to the control group, treated by standard transurethral resection.

Conventionally, transurethral standard resection (SR) of bladder tumour is performed in a piecemeal manner. Transurethral en bloc resection (EBR) has been described as an alternate surgica...
This study will prospectively evaluate a new electrosurgical procedure (bipolar transurethral prostatectomy) in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia.
RATIONALE: Transurethral resection is a less invasive type of surgery for bladder cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways...
This is a prospective study enrolling consecutive patients who undergo transurethral resection of the bladder tumour (TURBT) aimed at determination of a safety of the procedure. Study end-...
This study is to verify the short-term efficacy and long-term prognosis of thulium laser resection compared with conventional transurethral resection of non-muscular invasive bladder cance...
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 techniqu...
Urethral stricture is a well-known complication after transurethral surgeries. The incidence of urethral stricture after transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) varies between 2.2 and 9.8%. Most of...
The standard of care in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer consists of transurethral tumor resection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of transurethral resection of bladder tumor (T...
To characterize the perioperative morbidity of transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) in order to identify important determinants of both quality and cost in the delivery bladder cancer care...
Transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) aims at complete resection of all the visible tumors. Existing guidelines recommend restage TURBT in all patients with T1 and high-grade tumors, to avo...
Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
The only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.
Imaging techniques that use illumination created with several optical interference filters by which the frequency ranges are spectrally narrowed and light scatter is greatly reduced. Thus the reflected photons reconstituting the images are from distinct depths (the surface and deeper layers) of the object being imaged.

Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
