Ureteroneovesical Anastomoses

The following two options are available: (i) Reopen the infraumbilical incision, deliver the Studer limb extracorporeally, and perform the anastomosis in an open fashion. (ii) Particularly in obese patients, bilateral anastomoses are performed completely intracorporeally (see later).

In the former case, gentle traction on the ureteral holding sutures pulls the distal ureters into the operative field. The ureters are spatulated for approximately 1 cm. Bilateral ureteral 6-French single "J" stents are passed into the renal pelvis. The stents are exteriorized through the wall of the neobladder and then through one of the lateral 5 mm port sites. The ureters are sequentially implanted into the proximal portion of the ileal segment in a standard Bricker fashion. The apices are fixed to the bowel using three interrupted 4-0 poliglecaprone sutures. The remainder of the ureteral implantation is performed using a running 4-0 poliglecaprone suture. The Studer limb is replaced into the abdominal cavity. The ureteral stents are drawn through separate ileotomies in the neobladder wall and are exteriorized through the lateral 5 -mm port sites.

My Life My Diet

I lost over 60 pounds and 4+ inches off my waist without pills, strenuous exercise, or any of the things that the diet experts tell you to do...and I did it in less than 4 months! If you have the desire, and can read through my e-book , then this is for you! I could have easily made it a lot more difficult, with stacks of information that people will never read, but why?
