Answer

Emerging data suggest that health-related outcomes may be better when high-volume surgeons or surgeons in high-volume centers perform certain uro-oncologic surgeries. [42] A recent meta-analysis of the available volume-outcome data suggests that this trend is also valid for radical cystectomy. [43]
