Continent ileocaecal urinary reservoir.


In 14 cases, a continent ureteroileocaecal urinary reservoir has been constructed. If a long-term ease of self catheterization can be maintained, some patients requiring an urinary diversion might prefer an appliance-free urinary reservoir to a freely draining conduit and urinary appliance. The indications and place for the continent urinary reservoir still need to be studied, modified and proven during the coming years.
