To study the dynamic properties of ileal conduits and to attempt to diagnose obstruction at an early point in time, that is prior to the development of conduit or upper urinary tract dilatation, a continuously perfused catheter technique was used to measure pressures within the conduit during filling and emptying, and to measure the resistance to flow at the stomal level. The mean values of residual urine, resting pressure, voiding pressure and stomal profile pressure were significantly higher in obstructed than in non-obstructed conduits. However, there was an overlap between values in each parameter, thus necessitating analysis of the entire pressure data in any given case. The data also show that even a small increase in residual urine above normal, 4.0 plus or minus 0.9 cc, may be an indication of early obstruction and that stomal caliber does not necessarily correlate with the degree of obstruction.
