Abstract

The perfect bladder substitute has not been devised yet. The ileal orthotopic bladder substitute, however, provides adequate capacity, convenient voiding patterns, optimal continence rate, preservation of renal function, acid-base balance, and calcium metabolism. The authors describe important surgical details based on experience with more than 200 patients. To achieve a good functional result, patient selection, postoperative voiding reeducation, and meticulous follow-up are important.
