In our Institute, a new system (SBTS-101[R]) designed to simultaneously deliver local bladder hyperthermia (HT) and intravesical chemotherapy (ICT) has been recently developed and clinically tested on recurrent superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder (STCCB) [7, 8].
As a preliminary study, we evaluated MMC systemic absorption in two patients with STCCB in which MMC instillation was associated with microwave-induced local HT (homogeneous heating of bladder mucosa within a medium temperature of 42.5 [degrees]C-46.5 [degrees]C).
