Bladder cancer is one of the most frequents pathologies in urology. The introduction of the laser among the technical tools supposed a great advance, but the initial results with the first model failed with the expectations. Nevertheless, nowadays we have at our disposal a great variety of laser for urological use, with different functions and applications. We perform a review and try to assess the actual indications for its employment in the treatment of bladder cancer, as well as future applications.
