Abstract

Transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) is performed for diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer. The objective when performing TURBT is to ascertain accurate histological diagnosis of the tumour (type, grade and stage), and to completely resect non-muscle invasive tumours. It may also be used to debulk large tumours prior to radiotherapy and as a palliative measure for symptom control (e.g. bleeding).
