Objective: To present the local recurrence rates after radical cystectomy for advanced bladder cancer and to compare them between patients with orthotopic neobladder and ileal conduit. Patients and methods: 97 patients with radical cystectomy were analyzed: 75 patients with orthotopic ileal neobladder, operated from 1985. to 2006, and 22 patients with ileal conduit, operated from 2000. to 2006. Results: Overall recurrence rate was 41.3% in the neobladder group, and 50% in the ileal conduit

Conclusion: Comparable recurrence rates, operative time, the complexity of the surgical technique and the results between two groups, strongly support the construction of orthotopic neobladder, as superior in functional, esthetic, and psychological point of view.
