Abstract

We have used the continent ileal bladder as a bladder replacement after radical cystectomy. The ileal bladder is an ileal pouch which is anastomosed to the urethral stumpf. The ureters are implanted by a free end ureteroileostomy. The long term results with 26 patients who underwent this procedure are reported. In the early postoperative period, urodynamic and radiographic studies revealed small capacity and high intravesical pressure of the ileal bladder. However, it became a low pressure reservoir with increased capacity gradually. The average bladder capacity was about 250ml and average residual urine was 30ml. Most of the patients were continent in the daytime if the voiding intervals were less than 3 hours at night, some patients were incontinent. Urinary leakage was the most frequent complication. VUR and hydronephrosis were still the problems to be solved. The ileal pouch bladder is a valuable peocedure in properly selected cases.
