This is a case-based activity that includes discussion of a 79 year old female with a 30 pack/year history of smoking who presents with high grade muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. CT Urogram reveals a thickened bladder wall with no lymphadenopathy. She is interested in curative intent options.
At the end of the course, you should be able to:
1) Analyze the underutilization of curative intent therapies for older patients with bladder cancer;
2) Evaluate data that informs the decision to administer neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder; and
3) Evaluate contemporary data for surgery and radiotherapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
