The authors report their experience in the treatment of recurrent stricture of the appendiceal stump in continent diversion (Indiana pouch) after cystectomy by means of the Memotherm ureteral stent. The patient presented was treated successfully with this device after failure of repeat cold-knife incisions of the stricture. At 9-months' follow-up from positioning, the stent is in place, covered by mucosa. Self-catheterization of the pouch is easily performed five or six times a day with a 12F catheter.
