Urinary Stomas

  • Amit R. Patel

Urinary stomas are sometimes necessary in patients requiring urinary diversion for various indications including malignant, infectious, neuropathic, or congenital disorders of the urinary tract. Although stomas may rarely be of urothelial origin (such as vesicostomy), the use of bowel in urinary diversion has remained constant for more than 150 years. In this chapter, we review the different types of urothelial and intestinal stomas commonly used for urinary diversion.
