Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is relatively rare among urothelial cancers, with an incidence of about two cases per 100,000 person-years. Despite earlier diagnosis, non-invasive surgical managements, and the increased use of perioperative chemotherapy, UTUC is associated with poor oncologic outcomes. According to the current guidelines, the gold standard treatment for UTUC is radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) with bladder cuff resection. Methods of surgery and ancillary neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy may impact patient outcomes. In this Special Issue, we will review current studies and opinions on questions about the surgical and medical management of UTUC.
