Abstract

Ileocystoplasty for enlargement of bladder capacity in conjunction with renal transplantation has been described in several cases. However, the surgical approach has been accomplished as a two-stage procedure. We report the case of a 21-year-old female myelomeningocele patient with end-stage renal insufficiency who was treated with ileocytstoplasty and living related renal transplantation at a single stage. Convalescence remained uneventful. On follow-up 13 months after the operation, the renal parameters remained stable.
