Answer

The American Urological Association/Society of Urological Oncology (AUA/SUO) recommendations for repeat TURBT are as follows [143] :

  • In patients with incomplete initial resection, repeat TURBT if technically feasible.
  • For high-risk, high grade Ta tumors, consider performing repeat TURBT of the primary tumor site within 6 weeks of initial TURBT.
  • In T1 disease, repeat TURBT of the primary tumor site, including muscularis propria, within 6 weeks of initial TURBT.
