Use of YAG laser therapy in 60 cases of bladder cancer

Use of YAG laser therapy in 60 cases of bladder cancer

Chinese Journal of Clinical Oncology 20(10): 762-763

From 1989 to 1991, 60 patients with bladder cancer were treated with YAG laser and followed up for 4 to 28 months. One recurrence at the primary site and 8 recurrences at other parts of the bladder were found. No complication such as perforation of bladder wall or bleeding were developed in all the 34 treated patients. YAG laser irradiation is a safe and optimal therapeutic modality for bladder cancer in selected patients.
