Bladder Augmentation

Bladder augmentation is required in most cases to create a large compliant urinary reservoir [28,32,35,36]. It is not known just how much bowel can be "stolen" from the gastrointestinal tract for this purpose without any deleterious effect on nutrition or, in cases that have had a pull-through, on continence [29,35]. Gas-trocystoplasty, or a gastric reservoir, has been favored by some to avoid shortening of the bowel [35,41], sometimes with an additional ileocystoplasty to improve compliance [35]. The ileum and colon can also be used for augmentation in selected cases [28,32,41].
