Abstract

The development of continent urinary diversions was an important step forward in improving the quality of life of patients undergoing pelvic exenteration. While the technique is relatively simple, it can be very time- consuming and uses a significant portion of the patient's colon in its construction. Here a modification of the technique for construction of a continent ileocolic reservoir which results in a similar reservoir that uses less colon and requires less time to construct is presented. We also report results of the use of this technique in seven patients.
