Water Irrigation as a Treatment for Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

posted on 2022-02-16, 22:50 authored by MO LI
Superficial bladder cancer has a high chance to recur after the initial surgical removal. Chemotherapy installation into the bladder after surgical removal of bladder tumours is recommended but not used very often. This thesis is to explore if using water to flush the bladder for period of time after bladder surgery may be an alternative option to help reduce the chance of the tumour's return.
