PEREZ SANZ, P. et al. Extra-anatomic urinary diversion by subcutaneous catheter. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.4, pp.314-317. ISSN 0210-4806.

Percutaneous nephrostomy has been one of most used palliative method of urinary diversion to treat cronic renal failure in neoplasic patients. Psychological and social factors meke this measure to be rejected by some patients even sin situations where this is the only action that would make their survival longer. The utilization of ureteral stents provides benefits to a certain percentage of patients, not being possible its usage in all the occassions. Urinary subcutaneous diversion can be a simple and well tolerated alternative for the patient. The following clinic case describes and approach implementing a subcutaneous stent in a 60-yold male with a severe ureteric obstruction after failed management by endoscopy or open surgery.
