We have designed a prospective trial to compare our current protocol for processing pelvic lymph nodes to a fat-emulsifying protocol (FEP) after radical cystectomy
Georgios Gakis of the Department of Urology, Eberhard-Karls University at Tuebingen, Germany and lead author, stated: "These data indicate for the first time that improved patient management with HAL-guided TUR-BT can make a difference in outcomes even for those bladder cancer patients who later progress to advanced disease and require radical cystectomy
Randomly, 6 patients underwent laparo scopic cystectomy
with hydrodissection using only normal saline (control group), and 6 patients underwent laparoscopic hydrodissection cystectomy
using normal saline and diluted vasopressin (case group).
Material and methods: We reviewed 460 patients retrospectively who underwent radical cystectomy
This situation exists despite the fact that approximately 35% of patients treated by cystectomy
develop metastatic disease and many of these individuals die of their disease.
He said that he had become unwell since his cystectomy

and debridement were performed in the right lung.

The team, led by Dr Mohsin Al Mekresh, consultant, chief of urology and chair of surgery, performed a cystectomy
, removing the bladder, prostate, seminal vesicles, lower ureters and draining pelvic lymph nodes, and then reconstructing a new bladder.
We report the thrombelastography (TEG, Haemoscope, IL, USA) findings of a patient who developed a perioperative myocardial infarction and developed a severe systemic inflammatory response syndrome 48 hours after radical cystectomy
