In Sweden urinary bladder cancer is the second most common form of urological tumour with approximately 3 000 new cases annually.
The objectives of the Swedish National Registry of Urinary Bladder Cancer (SNRUBC) are to:
- identify and quantify the use of examination and treatment procedures in the country and perform comparisons between regions and hospitals
- lay the foundation for long-term rational improvement measures
- continuously register lead times from referral to consultation to transurethral surgery to more extensive curative treatment and report these lead times to the involved parties and to the general public
- via follow up record development of the condition after primary treatment with first recurrence, progress and death in tumour disease.
Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
