vesicotomy

 [ves″ĭ-kot´ah-me]
incision into the urinary bladder, usually done to divert the flow of urine when the bladder can no longer function as a reservoir. After incising the bladder the surgeon moves it forward and sutures the opening to the skin, forming a stoma. Patient care is similar to that required for cutaneous ureterostomy and ileal conduit. Called also cystotomy.
