Re: challenging the dogma of simultaneous resection of bladder tumor and benign prostate

Authors: Daniele Castellani, Marco Dellabella

Abstract

Doctors Tsivian and Tsivian commented on the results of our randomized clinical trial, evaluating oncological and functional outcomes of simultaneous transurethral prostate (TURP) and bladder tumor resection (TURBT) in men with concomitant benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with surgical indication (1). First of all, we would like to thank them for their insightful editorial comment which was recently published in this journal (2).
