Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) has many similarities to bladder carcinoma, but also some important differences. Join Dr. Seth Lerner, as he contrasts these 2 diseases, as well as important differences between low-grade and high-grade UTUC. Dr. Lerner highlights important considerations in the instruments, imaging, and biopsy techniques for diagnosing low-grade UTUC. Surgical options are considered, with a focus on patient selection for endoscopic nephron-sparing surgery. The safety and efficacy of intracavitary therapy are discussed, with an emphasis on mitomycin for pyelocalyceal solution.
