Objective: To prevent postoperative relapse after HOLRBT, we compared postoperative adjuvant therapies. Methods: One hundred fifty patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) were meanly divided into three groups: A, B, and C. Group A patients only took sunitinib, group B patients underwent TGC perfusion chemotherapy, and group C patients took sunitinib and underwent TGC chemotherapy. Results: It was discovered that TGC perfusion chemotherapy combined with taking sunitinib can significantly reduce the relapse rate. Most of the tumor relapse period was assembled at 9 months after the operation. No-tumor relapse survival rate and no-fluorescence in situ hybridization positive survival rate in Group C were significantly higher than those of Group A and Group B. Conclusion: Therefore, the combined application of taking sunitinib drug and going through TGC perfusion chemotherapy after secondary HOLRBT will evidently improve the prognosis of patients with a glorious applicated prospect.
