abstract

  • Patients presenting for renal transplantation with urinary diversion abnormalities pose serious problems. The use of a terminal loop cutaneous ureterostomy (TLCU) in patients whose outcome was satisfactory was first described in 1977. Primary urinary drainage was achieved in 3 recipients of cadaver renal allografts by creating a TLCU. This method of drainage has been satisfactory in these patients with follow-up between four and thirty months. We suggest that this simple technique should be considered more frequently for selected patients who require supravesical urinary diversion.
