Paper Abstract

Hexaminolevulinate fluorescence cystoscopy by the addition of a specific tissue fluorophore enhances the contrast between benign and malignant epithelial (urothelial) cells in the bladder. Improved detection of flat and papillary tumors as confirmed in recent phase III clinical trials allows the urologist to obtain a precise information on the disease extent at the whole surface of the bladder wall. With gaining experience, management of non muscle invasive bladder cancer improves in readiness and accuracy.
