From October, 1987 through September, 1991, 39 patients underwent construction of Indiana pouch for cutaneous urinary diversion. There were 35 men and 4 women, and their ages ranged from 38 to 77 years (a mean age of 62 years). After the first 8 cases, Indiana pouch was constructed with several modifications which included complete detubularization of the cecum, construction of the pouch augmented with U-shaped ileal patch, and the use of stapled plication. There was no major early complication related to the pouch but one postoperative death of blood transfusion related graft versus host disease. End results were evaluated in 37 patients who were followed for 3 to 49 months. Late complications related to urinary reservoir occurred in 8 patients. The early two patients experienced pouch deformity due to incomplete detubularization of the colonic segment. Two patients had difficult catheterization due to a dilatation of the plicated ileum. One patient had metabolic acidosis requiring hospitalization. Patients perform self-catheterization 4-5 times during the day and 0-2 times at night for volumes ranging from 300 to 1,000 cc. Of 37 patients 34 achieved acceptable urinary continence and one had significant leakage requiring cutaneous bag. The remaining two patients suffered mild nocturnal incontinence. Follow up examination with excretory urography showed no upper urinary tract obstruction except one with unilateral hydronephrosis due to ureteroanastomotic stricture. Reservoirgraphy showed no reflux into the upper urinary tract in all the follow up cases.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
