AbstractRadical cystectomy with creation of urinary diversion is the standard treatment for muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma of the bladder. Despite advances in perioperative care, radical cystectomy is associated with significant morbidity. Reduction in perioperative morbidity and mortality remains a primary focus of bladder cancer outcome improvement. A number of evidence-based approaches to perioperative care have been proposed to reduce the overall burden of complications associated with radical cystectomy. Herein, we highlight and review recent and evolving evidence-based strategies to minimize the morbidity associated with surgical management of muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
