Does RNU have to be the next step for Ted’s unresectable primary disease?

Not an actual patient.

Ted, 55 years old, reported hematuria and flank pain. Urinalysis ruled out urinary tract infection. Cytoscopy ruled out bladder cancer.

Retrograde urography showed a large filling defect, and CT scan showed 2 endoscopically unresectable papillary tumors in the lower pole of the left renal pelvis. Ureteropyeloscopy and biopsy confirmed low-grade UTUC.

Father of 2 school-aged children, Ted is scared to lose a kidney. He prefers a noninvasive procedure that will not require extensive recovery.

    Key treatment considerations:
  • 2 kidneys
  • 2 unresectable papillary tumors
  • Diameter of largest tumor: 15 mm
  • Comorbidities: Hypertension
  • Treatment site: ASC
Jelmyto stays in the hard-to-reach areas of the renal pelvis for 4 to 6 hours, long enough to chemoablate Ted’s unresectable tumors.1See how Jelmyto rises to the challenge of the renal anatomy
