Abstract

The study of LOH/MSI in bladder tumors with 5 microsatellites markers, according to our results showed a sensibility of 74%. The biggest number in LOH/MSI was found in superficial tumors and GI-GII tumors. Although we cannot discard the cystoscopy study in the diagnostic and follow-up, the sensitivity of the urine cytology is better and could be one alternative diagnostic as a non-invasive procedure.
