Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Segments of ileum are used as conduits following ureteral resection and for bladder augmentation to achieve adequate bladder capacity. We herein report the use of a segment of transplanted ileum for this purpose in a patient with Gardner's syndrome who underwent multivisceral transplantation. To our knowledge this is the first such case report.
