Figure 82-2 Construction of the modified Camey II. A, The ileal loop is folded three times (Z shaped) and incised on the antimesenteric border. B, The reservoir is closed with a running suture to approximate the incised ileum. C, The urethroenteric anastomosis is performed.

Figure 82-3 Construction of the Hautmann ileal neobladder. A, A 70-cm portion of terminal ileum is selected. Note that the isolated segment of ileum is incised on the antimesenteric border. B, The ileum is arranged into an M or W configuration with the four limbs sutured to one another. C, After a buttonhole of ileum is removed on an antimesenteric portion of the ileum, the urethroenteric anastomosis is performed. The ureteral implants (Le Duc) are performed and stented, and the reservoir is then closed in a side-to-side manner.

Figure 82-4 Construction of the ileal neobladder (Studer pouch) with an isoperistaltic afferent ileal limb. A, A 60- to 65-cm distal ileal segment is isolated (approximately 25 cm proximal to the ileocecal valve) and folded into a U configuration. Note that the distal 40 cm of ileum constitutes the U shape and is opened on the antimesenteric border; the more proximal 20 to 25 cm of ileum remains intact (afferent limb). B, The posterior plate of the reservoir is formed by joining the medial borders of the limbs with a continuous running suture. The ureteroileal anastomoses are performed in a standard end-to-side technique to the proximal portion (afferent limb) of the ileum. Ureteral stents are used and brought out anteriorly through separate stab wounds. C, The reservoir is folded and oversewn (anterior wall). D, Before complete closure, a buttonhole opening is made in the most dependent (caudal) portion of the reservoir. E, The urethroenteric anastomosis is performed. F, A cystostomy tube is placed, and the reservoir is closed completely.

Figure 82-5 Construction of the Kock ileal reservoir. A, A total of 61 cm of terminal ileum is isolated. Two 22-cm segments are placed in a U configuration and opened adjacent to the mesentery. Note that the more proximal 17-cm segment of ileum will be used to make the afferent intussuscepted nipple valve. B, The posterior wall of the reservoir is then formed by joining the medial portions of the U with a continuous running suture. C, A 5- to 7-cm antireflux valve is made by intussusception of the afferent limb with the use of Allis forceps clamps. D, The afferent limb is fixed with two rows of staples placed within the leaves of the valve. E, The valve is fixed to the back wall from outside the reservoir. F, After completion of the afferent limb, the reservoir is completed by folding the ileum on itself and closing it (anterior wall). Note that the most dependent portion of the reservoir becomes the neourethra. The ureteroileal anastomosis is performed first, and the urethroenteric anastomosis is completed in a tension-free, mucosa-to-mucosa fashion.

Figure 82-8 Construction of the Mainz ileocolonic orthotopic reservoir. A, An isolated 10 to 15 cm of cecum in continuity with 20 to 30 cm of ileum is isolated. B, The entire bowel segment is opened along the antimesenteric border. Note that an appendectomy is performed. C, The posterior plate of the reservoir is constructed by joining the opposing three limbs together with a continuous running suture. D, An antireflux implantation of the ureters through a sub-mucosal tunnel is performed and stented. E, A buttonhole incision in the dependent portion of the cecum is made that provides for the urethroenteric anastomosis. Note that the ureterocolonic anastomoses are performed before closure of the reservoir. F, The reservoir is closed side to side with a cystostomy tube and the stents exiting.

Figure 82-9 Construction of Le Bag (ileocolonic) orthotopic reservoir. A, A total of 20 cm of ascending cecum and colon, with a corresponding length of adjacent terminal ileum, is isolated. The bowel is opened along the entire antimesenteric border, and the two incised segments are then sewn to one another. This forms the posterior plate of the reservoir. B, This reservoir is folded and rotated 180 degrees into the pelvis with the most proximal portion of the ileum (2 cm non-detubularized) anastomosed to the urethra. C, Modification is performed with complete detubularization of the bowel segment, which is then anastomosed to the urethra.
