QUEIPO ZARAGOZA, J.A. et al. Predictive value of progression of muscularis mucosae and percentage G3 cells in-vesical T1G3 tumours. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2005, vol.29, n.5, pp.439-444. ISSN 0210-4806.

Introduction and objective: Vesical tumor T1G3 constitutes the border between the superficial tumor and the infiltrante tumor. Some of these tumors do not respond to BCG and progress, with cystectomy that present poor results, patients who would benefit from a precocious and aggressive treatment if we could identify them in an preinvasive stage. New predictive factors try to select to these tumors, being little the works that consider anatomo- pathological meticulous study (substanding of the T1 in T1a and T1b and percentage of present G3 cells in the tumor). Our objective is to analyze the value of these anatomo-pathological considerations like predictive factors of progression. Material and methods: Retrospective study of a series of 91 patient affection of vesical tumor T1G3 with initial treatment by means of RTU and BCG. We analyzed 12 variables. The new predictive factors: the level of invasion respect to muscularis mucosae and the percentage of G3 cells. By means of logistic regression analisys we establish the independent pronostic factors for tumoral progression. Results: A total of 31 patients presented infiltration of detrusor, passing away 17 of tumoral cause, after an average time of pursuit of 57.8 ± 28.2 months. In 8 cases (9%) the substanding could not be determined. The rate of progression for T1a tumors was of 20% (8/40) and for T1b 53% (23/43). Presented independent predictive value of progression the multiplicity (odds: 7,26), the size (odds: 2,14), the presence of Cis (odds: 1,42) and the subestanding (odds: 6,81). Conclusion: The substanding is a predictive factor of progression clinically useful in vesical tumors T1G3, reason why we considered habitual clinical introduction.
