The paper presents the results of 114 radical cystectomies made in 1996-2002. The age of 114 patients (103 males, 11 females) ranged from 37 to 78 years (mean age 57.5 years). Transient cell carcinoma was diagnosed in 81.5% patients. Supravesical urine derivation was conducted by means of ureterocutaneostomy and transureteroureteronephrostomy in 9 (7.9%) patients, ureterosygmoanastomosis--in 43 (37.7%) patients, artificial orthotopic urinary bladder was created in 7 (6.1%) patients of a gastric segment and in 55 (48.2%) patients of the ileum. Postoperative complications were observed in 28 (24.6%) patients, intestinal obstruction being a prevailing complication. Five patients died: 2 of pulmonary artery thromboembolism, 1 of acute cardiac failure, 1 of sepsis and 1 of gastric bleeding. Continent methods of urine derivation were preferred, such as ureterosygmoanastomosis by Mainz-Pouch II and creation of orthotopic urinary bladder of the stomach or of the ileum.
