Laparoscopically Assisted Ileal Conduit (in the Neurogenic Bladder)

Management of neurogenic bladders can be frustrating, as these patients present with complex and multiple problems. Though the clinician is concerned more about preserving renal function, the patient is concerned about normal voiding without leakage. In noncompliant bladders, one of the options is augmentation with intermittent self-catheterization. Ileal conduit is done occasionally when major reconstructive procedures are not possible or not suitable [1,2].
