The Mainz Pouch for Continent Urinary Diversion, Bladder Substitution and Augmentation
Part of the Clinical Practice in Urology book series (PRACTICE UROLOG)
The work of Kock and his associates on continent ileostomies (Kock 1973) and later on the application of their continent ileal pouch for continent urinary diversion has stimulated considerable interest in this field. A variety of procedures were investigated experimentally and were clinically applied for bladder augmentation, substitution or for continent diversion. It soon became evident that urinary reservoirs constructed from isolated bowel segments should fulfill the following criteria:
Adequate storage capacity and compliance.
A low pressure system without excessively high pressures caused by peristaltic contraction waves.
A reliable method of antirefluxive ureter implantation.
