The patient was a 75-year-old man who was referred due to hematuria. CT revealed bladder carcinoma 8cm in length, a 5-cm aneurysm of the abdominal aorta and a3-cm aneurysm of the left common iliac artery. He was referred to our hospital for the treatment of bladder carcinoma and aneurysms. We simultaneously performed Y graft replacement, radical cystectomy and bilateral cutaneous ureterostomy. His postoperative course was uneventful, without any prosthetic infection.
