Abstract

For some time now, local hyperthermia, alone or in combination with radio or chemotherapy, has proven to be a promising method for treating several kinds of solid tumours. A new system, based on a microwave source, delivering local bladder hyperthermia together with intravesical chemotherapy, has been realized and clinically tested in the pre-TUR approach, in 44 patients suffering from superficial tumour of the bladder. Clinical and histological evaluation confirmed the feasibility and safety of this combined preoperative approach. A very high tumour response rate has been observed.
