Summary— Analysis of 86 patients who underwent salvage cystectomy following a radical course of radiotherapy for bladder cancer and 37 patients who underwent primary cystectomy has shown a greater survival for women than men.
The following factors were associated with a significant deterioration in survival:
1. Age at time of cystectomy: post-operative mortality and tumour recurrence are greater over the age of 70.
2. Non-function of one kidney on IVU.
3. Grade 3 tumour on cystectomy specimen.
4. pT3 or pT4 tumour on cystectomy specimen.
