CABELLO BENAVENTE, R. et al. Urinary undiversion; bricker to studer: With regard of two cases. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.9, pp.939-942. ISSN 0210-4806.
We present two cases of urinary undiversion from an ileal loop (Bricker) to an orthotopic neobladder. Due to miss adaptation to the stoma, two patients demanded reconversion to a continent urinary diversion. We proceed to change their urinary diversion to an ileal neobladder (Studer), one by open surgery and the other by laparoscopic surgery. In both cases immediate postoperative went uneventful. Both patients are continent, satisfied with their new situation, and without metabolic complications. Urinary undiversion from an ileal conduit to an orthotopic neobladder is technically feasible by open or laparoscopic surgery. It is a valid alternative for patients with complications due to their urinary diversion or miss adaptation to the cutaneous stoma.
