We report on 64 patients subjected to radical cystectomy; 56 had carcinoma and 8 had non-tumorous indications (contracted bladder, exstrophy of the bladder). Indications, early and late results are discussed. In case of malignancy the rate of recurrences in early stages was about the same as in advanced stages. So it is not possible to say anything definitely about the individual prognosis of recurrence in patients undergoing radical cystectomy. It is easier to justify palliative cystectomy because of the relatively low risk of operation.
