Answer

Colombo et al have reported beneficial results using a combination of intravesical mitomycin-C and local microwave-induced hyperthermia. They compared a group of these patients with patients receiving only mitomycin-C and found a significant improvement in survival in the patients receiving combined therapy. [11]
