Abstract

An experience in 171 cases of superficial urinary bladder tumors treated with transurethral resection (TURT) at the Mayo Hospital Lahore between 1985 to 1990 is reported. In 160 cases out of 171, the tumors were resected endoscopically followed by intravesical instillation of Mitomycin-C 20mg. This resulted ¡n significant reduction in the number of recurrences. In the remaining 11 cases, the tumors were too numerous for endoscopic resection. In these cases the intravesical Mitomycin-C 20mg twice weekly for 4 weeks resulted in marked improvement and the tumors were either rendered resect able or disappeared completely.
