In the presence of incurable disease, various methods can be used to reduce the incidence of these symptoms. A team approach—with urologist, clinical oncologist, palliative care doctor, clinical nurse specialists, and pain control team—should provide a multidisciplinary approach to palliation. This requires use of good symptom relief with pain control, palliative radiotherapy, or palliative chemotherapy: all of which aim to improve the quality of life and reduce pain and bleeding. Urinary diversion or even cystectomy are justified as palliative measures for bleeding, pain, and fistulation.
Urinary diversion after bladder removal Bladder removal is followed by a cutaneous diversion (ileal conduit) or by orthotopic or ectopic bladder reconstruction (neobladder). In the early 1950s, Bricker introduced the concept of interposing a section of small bowel between the ureters and skin as a conduit (ileal conduit). This allowed the construction of a larger and non-stenosing stoma over which a bag could be fitted. The ileal conduit has remained the mainstay of urinary diversion after cystectomy ever since.
