Between January 1980 and June 1990 we treated 21 patients with invasive carcinoma of the bladder and abdominal aortic aneurysm. Three distinct groups of patients were identified. Group 1 comprised 8 patients who were initially diagnosed with invasive bladder cancer and during cancer staging a concomitant abdominal aortic aneurysm was found. Group 2 consisted of 10 patients previously treated for invasive bladder cancer who had aneurysmal disease at a later date. Group 3 included 3 patients who underwent a previous aneurysm repair and subsequently had invasive carcinoma of the bladder. Total survival was 9 of 21 patients (43%) with a mean of 84 months of followup after initial diagnosis. This finding is comparable to long-term (greater than 5 years) survival in patients with invasive carcinoma of the bladder alone. In fact, none of the 21 patients studied experienced rupture of the aneurysm and/or died of aneurysmal disease. We found that patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm and invasive bladder cancer have a poor overall prognosis. Although aneurysm repair presents technical challenges, mortality is dependent upon the carcinoma and other vascular or medical diseases, and does not bear direct relationship to abdominal aortic aneurysm.
