Relatively few data are available on UT TCC following cystectomy. In most circumstances nephroureterectomy is the treatment of choice. The risk of bilateral disease is small (2% to 4%); however, in patients with bilateral UT TCC, a solitary kidney, or poor renal function and low-stage, low-grade TCC, renal preservation by local resection and/or topical therapy may be effective. In high-grade or high-stage disease, whenever feasible nephroureterectomy should be performed.
