The treatment of non muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) continues to be a challenge. Hyperthermia (HT) combined with intravesical chemotherapy is used to enhance the effects of chemotherapy (León-Mata et al. in Arch Esp Urol 71(4):426–437, 2018). This chapter covers grey literature related to Hyperthermic MMC in bladder cancer.
