Active Surveillance in Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer
Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) represents approximately 70% of all incident cases of bladder cancer (Large et al.). Consensus guidelines differ on risk definition and in management. A systematic review relating to active surveillance in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer was conducted. This was to identify references relating to bladder cancer and en-bloc resection. The search strategy aimed to identify all references related to bladder cancer AND screening. Search terms used were as follows: (Bladder cancer) AND (low risk) AND (Active Surveillance) . This chapter covers systematic review results.
