neobladderA urinary diversion (UD) procedure in which a diseased bladder is replaced with one created from intestine that empties via the urethra.
Similar to natural voiding (i.e., best quality of life compared to other forms of UD); considered the procedure of choice for selected patients with bladder cancer; post surgery, voiding/urinating is relearned.
High rate of complications; complete emptying of the neobladder may require catheterization at the end of each void; careful patient selection is mandatory.
