Abstract

Numerous techniques for replacing the urethra have been previously described, but attempts to provide continence have rarely been satisfactory. Urethral replacement using ileum with an ileal intussuscepted valve for continence has been successfully performed in ten female dogs. Eight of them were available for a 1 to 6-month followup. This neo-urethra has provided good continence and can be easily catheterized. The clinical usefulness of this technique in the treatment of total urethral loss in humans needs to be further explored.
