Abstract

Continent urinary diversion (CUD) continues to be widely accepted by both urologists and patients for urinary reconstruction after cystectomy and some complicated cases of urinary incontinence. Different operative techniques and modifications have been contributed in the last 3 decades. The advantages and disadvantages of each technique have long been debated. Ureterosigmoidostomy is the oldest form of CUD but has lost favor in recent decades. The other 2 broad categories of CUD are cutaneous and orthotopic CUD. This review presents and discusses the current common forms of continent urinary diversions.
