En Bloc resection of Bladder Tumors

APRIL 28, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) En bloc resection of tumors of the bladder using HybridKnife is a new surgical procedure that allows recently discovered cancer of the bladder to be effectively treated. As the tumor is not dissected in the bladder, this procedure enables a precise pathological diagnosis of the tumor margin as well as deep infiltration of the tumor.

In Collaboration with Lebanese Urology Society, the University Hospital Notre Dame De Secours (NDS) organized a conference and a workshop on “En Bloc Resection of Bladder Tumors”.

Resection using the HybridKnife enables: complete resection of the entire carcinoma with a reduced risk of cancerous cells remaining behind in the bladder so that follow-up procedures are avoided and the risk of injury to the bladder is minimized.
