A revolutionary shape memory alloy-based disposable device for bladder cancer removal

Project description

Special cover to minimise bladder cancer recurrence

Bladder cancer is the ninth most frequently-diagnosed cancer worldwide, with the highest incidence rates observed in men in Southern and Western Europe, North America, as well in certain countries in Northern Africa or Western Asia. In Europe, a total of 118 000 new cases and 52 000 deaths are estimated annually. While treatment depends on how advanced the cancer is, there is a high risk of tumour recurrence. The U-TURBT project developed an innovative disposable device (by the same name) to cover and seal the bladder portion affected by the tumour. The cover stops tumour cell spillage and dissemination, minimising the risk of recurrence. It will also be upgraded to permit bladder tumour resection and extrication.
