To correlate urine cytology findings before and after flexible cystoscopy.
PATIENTS AND METHODS
A total of 153 patients undergoing surveillance for bladder tumour provided voided urine for cytology before and immediately after flexible cystoscopy.
Of the 153 patients, 116 had negative urine cytology before and after (96%) a visibly normal cystoscopy and 37 had positive urine cytology before and after cystoscopy that showed recurrent tumour.
Urine cytology immediately after flexible cystoscopy correlates well with results of urine cytology before cystoscopy.
