Urinary Diversion

  • R. B. Brown


Urinary diversion techniques have been devised mainly for patients in whom, for various reasons, there is a need to bypass the bladder. While these techniques were originally used for patients with ectopia vesicae (Simon, 1852) bladder malignancies are now the prime indication. Neurogenic bladder dysfunction, vesical decompensation from long standing obstruction, small capacity bladders and uncorrectable incontinence of urine are additional indications. Unfortunately, a perfect bladder substitute has yet to be devised.
