Cytotoxic chemotherapy, - 11 neoadjuvant and 17 adjuvant (4 mixed form) treatment, - was used in 24 cases in addition to radical cystectomy on patients with invasive urothelial-cell bladder cancer. Remission rate after the neoadjuvant treatment was 4/12, 3 complete remission among them. One patient died due to operative complication and one owing to the chemotherapy. During the 17 months mean follow up two patients died because of cancer generalisation. For the treatment of T(3b)-T4 urothelial bladder tumors with vascular or lymphogenic invasion cytotoxic chemotherapy is suggested in addition to the radical cystectomy. Patient survival was better after radical cystectomy with chemotherapy than survival after surgical therapy alone.
