Abstract

In summary, enterocystoplasty has become an effective, safe and very useful addition to management of vesical dysfunction in children. The use of bladder augmentation has become more universally accepted with the recognition of the safety of clean intermittent catheterization and the development of efficient antireflux mechanisms when ureteral reimplantation into the bowel is required. However, the surgeon who wishes to participate in this endeavor must have a solid foundation and understanding of vesical urodynamics and must be committed to offering these children an ongoing program to manage their life-long problems associated with their primary disease as well as the special need associated with augmentation procedures.
