Abstract

Complete urinary tract extirpation (CUTE) involves simultaneous bilateral nephroureterectomy, cystectomy or cystoprostatectomy, and the creation of a urinary diversion, if needed. Case reports of this operation have been published, but to our knowledge, this is the largest case series yet reported. We sought to evaluate the characteristics and outcomes of patients who underwent CUTE.
