Abstract

Reconstruction for failed urinary diversion is technically challenging, due to severe tissue adhesion around the anastomotic site. We report successful laparoscopic transureteroureterostomy with cutaneous ureterostomy via a completely extraperitoneal approach to salvage failed ileal conduit in two patients with necrotic ileal conduit and bilateral anastomotic obstruction, respectively. This novel, less invasive approach may offer a viable alternative to open surgical revision for failed ileal conduit urinary diversion.
