	abstract = {The impact of perioperative blood transfusion (BT) on survival outcomes has been reported in several urological and non-urological surgeries (1,2). Considering bladder cancer (BCa) patients, radical cystectomy (RC) with bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection represents the standard of care in muscle invasive and recurrent high risk non-muscle invasive disease (3). However, this procedure is related to a high risk of perioperative complications accounting for 50–60% of patients (4). In perspective, almost 30–65% of them need a perioperative BT as a direct consequence of tumor characteristics and complexity of the surgery (5). Preliminary data suggests that perioperative BT might have an impact on survival outcomes in RC patients (5).},
