Continent urinary diversion to the valved S-shaped rectosigmoid pouch was performed in 9 female and 6 male patients 12 to 65 years old (mean age 51 years). The pouch was constructed by detubularization and S-shaped reconfiguration of 30 cm. of the intact rectum and sigmoid colon. The ureters were reimplanted into the pouch using antireflux techniques. Reflux of urine from the pouch to the proximal colon was prevented by fashioning an intussusception valve. The construction was protected by a transverse colostomy for 6 to 8 weeks. With a followup of 3 to 24 months (mean 11 months), all patients are continent during the day and also at night with evacuation intervals of 3 to 6 hours. There have been no cases of symptomatic urinary tract infection. Only 1 patient had mild hyperchloremic acidosis. No patient complained of abdominal distention or constipation. Contrast study via the anus (radiography of the pouch) showed that the intussusception valve was competent in all but 1 patient in whom reflux to the proximal colon was noted due to sliding of the nipple valve, which was revised successfully. Urodynamic studies (cystometry of the pouch) showed a capacity of 400 to 900 ml. (mean 600) with an intraluminal pressure of 22 cm. water (range 10 to 34) at maximal filling. The valved S-shaped rectosigmoid pouch is a faster and simpler surgical procedure compared with the modified rectal bladder (valved rectum augmented with ileum). It also results in a smooth postoperative course, since an intestinal anastomosis proximal to the colostomy is avoided.
