Urinary Diversion (Ileal Conduit)

Temporary or permanent diversion of the flow of urine through the ureter away from the URINARY BLADDER in the presence of a bladder disease or after cystectomy. There is a variety of techniques: direct anastomosis of ureter and bowel, cutaneous ureterostomy, ileal, jejunal or colon conduit, ureterosigmoidostomy, etc. (From Campbell's Urology, 6th ed, p2654)

05/01/2009 - "Radical cystectomy and urinary diversion is universally accepted as the most effective treatment for muscle invasive bladder cancer, but the operation is complicated, time-consuming and causes many complications. "
09/01/2000 - "Even though radical cystectomy still remains the 'gold standard' for the treatment of invasive bladder cancer, newer insights and developments are entering the urological arena: a 'tailored' surgical approach combining a less extensive procedure and a better quality of life seems feasible for selected patients without compromising the outcome; the type of urinary diversion has no impact on the risk of complications, the ability to receive postoperative salvage treatments and the natural history of the disease; the depth of extension of the tumour and the nodal involvement are the only independent 'classical' predictors of survival after radical cystectomy; pelvic node dissection is curative in patients with limited nodal involvement; the clinical application of newer molecular prognostic factors still remains controversial."
04/01/2019 - "Radical cystectomy with orthotopic urinary diversion is considered the gold standard for treatment of muscular invasive bladder cancer or high-risk nonmuscular invasive bladder cancer. "
10/01/2012 - "Radical cystectomy with lymphadenectomy and urinary diversion is the gold standard treatment for bladder cancer in organ-confined muscle-invasive disease and selected patients who have high-grade non-muscle-invasive disease or are non-responders to BCG. "
07/01/2006 - "With the provision of a functionally adequate urinary diversion, cystectomy represents an effective treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer without metastatic spread. "
