Abstract
5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-induced fluorescence diagnosis (FD) allows for a more thorough transurethral resection (TUR) of superficial bladder tumours (BT) compared to conventional white light (WL). A prospective randomized trial was performed to investigate whether residual tumour rate and long-term tumour recurrence can be reduced by means of FD.
