Transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT)
TURBT allows the doctor to remove cancerous changes from the inside of the bladder in a minimally invasive manner. This procedure also removes the tumour tissues, leaving the bladder structurally intact.
The procedure involves inserting an electroresector through the urethra into the bladder, allowing the doctor to visually localise the tumour, which is then excised using a special loop. After the growths are removed, the resulting bleeding is controlled using coagulation. After excision, the tumour is sent to a laboratory to be examined for malignancy. The procedure is carried out under anaesthesia.
When is TURBT performed?
Indications for TURBT:
- presence of tumours in the bladder
- a diagnosis of bladder cancer
What are the benefits of TURBT?
The procedure is performed by an experienced surgeon using specialised and certified equipment, which guarantees the safety and effectiveness of the operation. Thanks to the low invasiveness of this method, the period of recovery after the procedure is significantly shorter.
