Abstract

The evidence available suggests that open and robot-assisted radical cystectomy lead to similar outcomes in bladder cancer. True advances will come from a better understanding of the biology of the disease, and a comprehensive, multimodal approach that aims to improve patient survival and quality of life is more critical than the surgical technique.
