Abstract

Introduction: We analyze patient-physician dialogue prior to radical cystectomy (RC) when choosing the type of urinary diversion (UD). Methods: 132 patients operated by one surgical team between 2003 and 2005 were included. Physician's recommendation, patient's decision and UD (neobladder (NB) or ileal conduit (IC)) performed were analyzed. Patients were grouped based on age, considering that age is often a limiting factor for NB. Results: When offered either NB or IC, 85% (49/58) in group I (<70 years) and 55% (12/22) in group II (≥70 years) elected NB. An IC was suggested for 16% (11/69) in group I and 65% (41/63) in group II. Six patients (2 in group I, 4 in group II) wanted a NB even though an IC was suggested. Conclusions: Counseling patients is important. When an IC was suggested, over 80% accepted this advice. When both were offered, younger patients usually elected a NB. Older patients preferred an IC.
