Abstract

 

Radical cystectomy (RC) with urinary diversion (UD) is still the standard treatment method for muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Type of UD is determined according to some characteristics of the patient and the tumor. Even in the most experienced hands, alternative scenarios may require an alternative diversion, including emergency UD for complications requiring immediate take down of the initial UD, tumor recurrence impacting the urinary tract or the UD, progressive impairment of renal function (in patients with a continent UD), malfunction/complications of the initial UD, and patient dislike of a stoma. We report a case of undiversion with natural history and outcome in a patient who had previously undergone RC and ileal conduit performed.
