RESECT Overview


Transurethral REsection and Single instillation intra-vesical chemotherapy Evaluation in bladder Cancer Treatment (RESECT) Improving quality in TURBT surgery.
RESECT is a new GLOBAL prospective multi-centre international observational study starting in 2020.
Status Update – 14/08/2020 : 527 collaborators have now pre-registered to take part in RESECT from 51 countries across the globe! The RESECT protocol is being finalised.

The newest BURST study about TURBT


Study Aim


RESECT aims to answer some key UNKNOWNS:


What things should we measure to determine TURBT quality?

What rate of achievement should we aim for in our practice?

What factors are associated with better achievement of TURBT quality?

Does reporting and comparing our TURBT quality make us do it better?

Ultimately we want to determine meaningful TURBT quality indicators, find out how these are most usefully measured and then use these to drive up quality across the world.
