Session

Management and outcome in invasive and locally advanced bladder cancer

ESU Course 23

  • Location:
    Room 21 (ICM, Level 2)
  • Chair:
     B. Malavaud, Toulouse (FR)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    MIBC is a multifaceted entity where one size no longer fits all, supporting the development of personalized and, in selected cases, organ-preserving strategies.
    Are the advances in imaging, molecular biology, conservative surgery; medical oncology and radiotherapy strong enough to shift the current pre-eminence of the ablative approach toward a more integrated and conservative perspective? If yes, what are the ideal candidates?

    • One size does not fit all and urologists are central to the development of personalized treatment in MIBC
    • Patients selection is critical and based on advances in imaging, resection techniques and pathology
    • Organ preservation is feasible in a significant proportion of patients
    • Radical cystectomy and pre-emptive chemotherapy are essential to optimize results in aggressive conditions.
