Abstract

Aretrospective descriptive cross-sectional observational study was conducted at the Urology Service of the Celestino Hernández Hospital, in the Municipality of Santa Clara, Villa Clara Province, in the period from 2014-2019 with the aim of characterizing epidemiological, clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic patients with bladder tumors who have been active smokers for most of their lives. The population was conformed by 147 patients with Transitional Papillary Bladder Carcinoma. Among the most frequent variables was found the toxic habits of these patients through the means used to diagnose the disease. In the applied surgical treatment, postoperative tumor recurrence, postoperative complications and localization of metastases at the time of diagnosis made the continuity of tobacco consumption impossible. Smoking was more prevalent in 83%. Pulmonary metastases were the most frequent with 9.52% of the population.
