BACKGROUND: In patients who do not qualify for an orthotopic urinary diversion, for example, the urethra cannot be spared or is functionally impaired, a heterotopic continent cutaneous cross-folded ileal reservoir offers a good alternative. OBJECTIVE: To describe the indication, surgical technique, and postoperative management, and to report the reservoir-related outcomes and complications associated with the serosa-lined tunnel. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Perioperative outcomes of 118 consecutive patients after cystectomy and a heterotopic ileal reservoir adapted from the Studer bladder substitute technique, operated between 2000 and 2018, were evaluated. The catheterisable serosa-l..
