Last updated:1st Apr 2012
The purpose of this study is to compare the uses of two types of equipment during transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT). The two types of surgical devices are: the monopolar loop electrocautery and the PlasmaKinetic (PK) Button Vaporization Electrode. These two devices do the same task but differ in the way they create electric current when removing cancerous tissue. The investigators hope to examine and compare the uses of these two surgical devices to see if any advantages do exist or whether they actually are similar. The goal of the study will be to prove similarity in outcomes between the two techniques and analyze the outcomes resulting from each case.
