Patients who had incomplete responses were advised to undergo an immediate radical cystectomy.
I have heard of a lady whose brother is going to have a cystectomy (his bladder only holds about 100 ml ).
cystectomy recommended for those with an initial incomplete response after initial therapy or recurrent high risk disease.
radical cystectomy remains one of the most effective methods of control of invasive bladder cancer.
partial cystectomy may be required to ensure complete tumor eradication.
