Abstract

Background. Augmentation ileocystoplasty is performed in the treatment of many functional disorders of the bladder: low capacity, low compliance, hypersensitive and hyperreflexic bladder. Methods. In this study personal experience on bladder augmentation in 11 patients from 1991 to 1995 is reported. The indications for this operation were: low compliance and low bladder capacity (6 cases) hypersensitive bladder (3 cases), neuroiogic bladder (3 cases). Surgical technique consists of 45 cm of terminal ileum reconfiguration, wide incision of bladder and 'bowel cuff' apposition. Results. The functional and symptomatic findings are satisfactory with real increase of bladder capacity, compliance and quality of life improvement in all patients. Conclusions. The ileocystoplasty is an easy, sure technique for all cases which need a bladder augmentation in order to improve the capacity, to lower the bladder pressure and to protect renal function.
