  1. SUICR segmental ureteroileal conduit resection; CIS carcinoma in situ
  2. aTumor staging and grading were based on the 2009 International Union Against Cancer TNM classification and the 2004 World Health Organization system. G3 = high-grade
  3. bDistal ureter was defined as the distal 1/3 of the ureter
  4. cPostoperative creatinine was examined 5–7 days after surgery
