Abstract: Urothelial carcinoma of the bladder remains a significant oncologic problem throughout the world and is a source of both morbidity and mortality. Despite advances in the understanding of disease and recent molecular data from The Cancer Genome Atlas, the clinical management of disease has not fundamentally changed over the past decade. In this lecture, we will discuss (I) new technology in the detection and monitoring of non-invasive disease (blue-light and narrow band imaging); (II) the role of lymphadenectomy at the time of cystectomy; (III) a novel risk stratification tool predicting prognosis after cystectomy; and (IV) systemic therapies and clinical trials for advanced and refractory disease.
