Complications of the Kock pouch.

Over the past 41/2 years, 395 consecutive Kock pouch procedures have been performed by the urology faculty at the University of Southern California School of Medicine as an alternative to conventional cutaneous urinary diversion. This article reviews the early and late complications experienced in the 386 patients surviving the operation and describes in detail modifications in surgical technique designed to reduce the complication rate and the subsequent need for re-operation. We remain convinced that construction from ileum of a low-pressure, high-capacity internal reservoir with continent and nonrefluxing valves as originally described by Kock remains the ultimate technique for patients requiring permanent urinary diversion or for those requiring conversion from a pre-existing form of diversion.[1]
